With 20 dancers on the stage, the work questions the dance process, exploring the emotions and physical sensations experienced by the dancers: horror, tension, explosion and sadness.
At the opening of the retrospective cycle of work by the Portuguese choreographer, Tânia Carvalho, the Teatro Maria Matos presents Icosahedron. This work gets it title from the 20-sided polygon, which is commonly considered to be the perfect shape. It is precisely this perfection, which is often sought by dancers but which is impossible to achieve, that Tânia Carvalho is questioning. 19th and 20th January, 9:30 pm, Maria Matos Teatro Municipal, Av. Frei Miguel Contreiras, 52 (metro: Roma). Tickets: 12 euros.
