TI’m at the second after the announcement.
I sigh and I feel included. “It’s going to start and they depend on me.” Them. The heroes, the ones that arrive through the mist – always the mist. Wonderful. Warful.
Ready to strike while I have so much love to give. The show is set and I, at the second after the second, find myself interested – everything seems so interesting!
I’m conscious. I’m a master at the art of deciding.
Tremors terrify me during the practice of my right. I should intervene. Everything seems so horrible! My fingers hurt. I have so many nightmares with so many effects!
And until now, nothing but mediocrity. Not even an inch of blood.
Welcome to the game of real life. Of real art. Of the nu-artistic.
One day you’re in, the next day you’re out. Auf Wiedersehen!
Loveable does not pretend to be admissible, acceptable or bearable.
Whether you love it, or contemplate it, in a world devoid of discussion.
This is a show where responsibility is entirely in the hands of the audience. They decide its progress (maybe even decide its non-beginning).
On stage performers, musicians, and cherries on top contest their “airtime”, inciting the public to adore. They fight for their interest. Loveable wants to be interesting – and does that really matter?
Originally co-founded by Raimundo Cosme and Cecília Henriques, Plataforma285 (now with two other accomplices ), is a company that owes its name to the budget assigned to the creation of its first show, in 2011.
