Created by Bruno Duarte
Presentation on September 18th and 19th, 2020, in Teatro Municipal Joaquim Benite, Almada


The year 2020 marks 60 years since the creation of "Psycho" (1960), by Alfred Hitchcock, and 40 years since the director's death (1980).
In "A Quiet Moment", the choreographer proposes to take a contemporary look at the historical object, in a dialectical exploration between the present and past. The notion of “suspense” will be one of the main concepts to work on, but also irony and meta-drama.

Sound: Bruno Duarte, a partir de “Psycho”, de Alfred Hitchcock

This year marks the thirtieth anniversary of Companhia de Dança de Almada. As a celebration of our history and its protagonists, we invited many of the dancers who over the years have passed through this company to perform on stage with the current dancers. There would be about thirty participants on the scene, which would be very interesting both from an artistic and emotional perspective. Nevertheless, this idea did not coadunate with the need for physical distance we are experiencing. We had to adopt another solution, and we have the hope that this project can still be realized one day. We are grateful for the availability that many of these dancers have shown to join us again and we will always remember them as key players in the development of this company.
