UNCONNECTED by Mafalda Deville

in collaboration with Israel Pimenta e José Valente






“All men seek happiness. This is without exception…This is the motive of every action of every man, even of those who hang themselves.”

Blaise Pascal


“Unconnected” has a structure of six solos, for six performers, apparently with no relation between them, apart from maybe the fact that all stand in a female universe (from the teenage women to the mother women) with no concernes of exposing the fear, the pain, the anger and as well, it’s own superation. The solos are meant to be in their own intimit a insidious refletion about identity and violence, physical and emotional that women today, and even more today go through. This production started from the exercise of revisiting solos created in the past, created for other bodies, other women, some to myself. Undressing the original emotional depth they were created in, out of contexto, they are now transfered or what is left of them, by this I mean, the movement, to this new bodies, to this new women. So they take over them, and own them, and bring them back to live because the hope of finding hapiness is never lost.

This work, is as well, or specially, for women that through dance try to find hapiness. What I look here is not for the foutain of the emotion, but the anger, exuberance and plenitude of experiencing the moment. That is why this characters are not affraid to graze  themselfs, to be viscerals,  or on the other hand, ethereal. They belong to desperate love, the need to connect with life, despite the cold solitude, from opression or from abandonment. The solos expose intimicy and if we find their soul we could be facing uncomunicated absurd. That is why even in the most furious and tragically painfull moments we could still mantain a comedy element and possibily tending to absurd. Desperate, hapiness…Or paraphrasing Cecília Meireles: “Because life, life, life is only possible reenvented.”

Maybe because hapiness is haze and  sadness clarity. And our eyes are only open to dance and imagination knowing at the end of the music and the silence we all frize waiting.
