Self

Beatriz Valentim // Corpo+Cidade 2022

“Initially a solo, Self soon became a duet, for having at its base concepts such as reflexivity and duality. Starting from the sociological concept of ‘self’, I proposed to think what questions we ask ourselves and what questions we ask others; what dependency relations we have from a social point of view; what spaces and contexts we inhabit. The reflexive analysis of the self implies the other and vice versa. The body-contour that you will encounter in this work appears, to me, as a body empty of meaning, ready to receive internal and external stimuli, which will be constantly analysed and experienced by the performers, in a
journey of duality and dualism.” Beatriz Valentim
