Coexistimos is a collage of metaphors about the challenge of being one and wanting to be many. To be the tiger and the tamer, a sad clown and a fit of laughter, live several bodies, wanting to be the reality of your dreams. Like a wave at sea, going through temporary states and be fully present in each of them. Wandering is an end in itself. Full of forget-me-nots and sweating, singing and dancing, a frenzy so good it feels like magic.
Coexistimos expresses the firm belief that arts are promiscuous and enjoy the company of one another. It has dance, theater, cinema, and manipulation of objects, architecture in movement, and varied artifices that try to create a succession of illusions.
It takes the form of 11 pictures, with languages that seek to remain autonomous and safe from mutual contamination, and which appear as pop-ups, cutting ties with the preceding block and having nothing that anticipates the following one.
It premiered in March 2018, within the scope of Festival Cumplicidades, in Lisbon.
