In the current world, dynamic and monotonously complex, the simple routine that surrounds us goes unnoticed. Little everyday details are visual magnets that bind us, making us lose track of time, space and reality. Numerous images that transform into imaginary desires, small havens, hiding, or just abstractions. Identifiable at first sight, clichéd moments such as: sitting on the couch surfing TV; meeting someone in a beautiful park, having to clean the house, and even knowing it’s a mess, completely ignoring the task; after a party, suffering from a hangover, try to understand what happened; these are moments trapped in our memory. Displaced episodes is a piece that combines simple daily events, where the performers are reflections of real situations, transporting to the stage the original panorama taken to the extreme and beyond reality.

 

Margarida Costa Belo, from Caldas da Rainha, started her journey in dance in the Atelier da Dança, a creative project of Escola Vocacional de Dança das Caldas da Rainha.
