Uma tarde no mundo / Performance

Rita Vilhena

[Portugal]

Sem Título (Reencontros no Palácio de Verão)

© José Caldeira

A solo work adapted, dismantled and rebuilt for the Palácio Pimenta (18th century). Recovering the character of another solo: #VIBRA #DOR, Rita Vilhena performs a discontinuous performance through the palace's rooms. This performance reflects issues of the feminine, the stereotype of the woman and the domesticated body. A piece with a non-binary and intersectional view of reality that aims to exaggerate the difference between inside and outside, above and below, male and female, with and against, having as purpose the questioning of the appearance of order. The challenge is to make a temporal friction of this woman-body in this space where objects have become museum pieces.
