Francisco Camacho

Theatro Circo
Braga, Portugal
Nova criação

Francisco Camacho gathers a group of professionals around the age of 50, challenging the canons of Western dance imprisoned in the idea of youth, strength and physical overcoming. Accompanied by Sérgio Pelágio’s live music, they successively reconfigure the space, using diverse materials that determine their physicality and movement. They refer to past experiences and confide the unthinkable, oscillating between reality and its misrepresentation, but what moves them are current desires, wanting to intervene in the future. Giving stage to an age usually less present is also a form of reflection on history and its violence, which deprives some subjects of their full existence, and calls for a greater maturity of communities. Here, the stage is also for old people and it is hoped that their almost anarchist anger will infect those who watch them
