Short Film: "Never Present" by Patrícia Andrade

28 June 2020, 10:00pm

Never Present is a non-narrative performance of a woman who moves in two overlapping spaces: her mind and her home. I resorted to the notion of state of the body, a paradoxical form of immobility (Philippe Guisgand) as a direction for the development of movement. The proposal of organicity for the construction of the work and the search for a mixture of technique and spontaneity make cinematic improvisation the methodology that suited its protagonism.

Teresa Simas, dancer and choreographer, created the movement in an improvisation for the camera. Pedro Carneiro, a solo classical percussionistt, conductor and composer, created the sound. The work includes excerpts from poems by Alberto Caeiro, heteronym of the poet Fernando Pessoa, questioning “what is the present?”.
