A BALLET STORY
Based on “Zephertyne” by David Chesky

A Ballet Story is inspired in the ballet Zephyrtine, by David Chesky. It is not however the performative representation or illustration of the original narrative – the exercise was rather an abstractive one, and as a starting point we had in mind the movement of bodies in space, articulated with music.

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.

Margem tem como inspiração o romance de 1937 de Jorge Amado, Capitães de Areia, que retrata um grupo de crianças e adolescentes abandonados que vivem nas ruas de São Salvador da Baía, roubando para comer, e dormindo num trapiche – um armazém onde, como uma espécie de família, se protegem uns aos outros e sobrevivem a um dia de cada vez. 80 anos depois da publicação do livro, quisemos questionar quem são os novos capitães de areia, inspirando-nos na realidade social destas crianças, e conscientes de que nem sempre há finais felizes.
