Nocturno

Joana Gama and Victor Hugo Pontes

Festival Big Bang - CCB - Centro Cultural de Belém
Lisboa
20 and 21 October

Time TBC

In children’s imagination, the night is perhaps the first of the great mysteries. The shadows, the darkness, the silence, the street sounds and the movements in the house inspire fantasies, a lot of fears and some fascination. In the children’s universe, night is synonymous with the unknown, on the one hand, and infinite possibility, on the other. Night terrors, monsters under the bed, heavy rain that won’t let you sleep, but also happy dreams, bedtime stories, lullabies, goodnight cuddles, moonlight.

The night is, by definition, a time of fantasy, and it remains that way in our adult life, becoming associated with loneliness, sleeplessness, deviation, but also with intimacy and reflection. For all these reasons, night is ancestrally linked to the artistic world, it rests somewhere between melancholy and transgression.

In this show there is a character that arrives and there is a character that leaves. One wants to build a new life and the other wants to leave to conquer the world. In common they have a place, Canas de Senhorim, which is never mentioned and because of that, Canas is all the places. They also have the number forty-four in common, as it is their age. This is the starting point for the construction of a self-fictional universe which speculates on people, places, streets that no longer exist or are at risk of disappearing, in a constant naming of memorabilia, as a continuous movement between utopia and catastrophe, as if resurrecting the dead was a way of inscribing them in History.
