Quero ir is a piece for soprano and fixed electronics written by Ema Ferreira, which makes use of the homonymous poem by soprano Beatriz Ramos. The sounds of spoken, sung and whispered voices present in the electronics come from recordings about the poem, made with Beatriz. The use of these recordings is crucial for the universe of the piece, where the electronics and the singer are ramifications of each other, making it ambiguous which one of them is the origin, and consequently it can be assumed that they are only one.

What if, in the intermission of a show called Intermission, two theater curtains could talk? Inspired by Edward Hopper's Intermission (1963) and by melancholy, I personify the curtains that are in the upper right corner of the work in order to question the positioning of theater in a society. I give them two voices: the voice of reason and the voice of emotion. Is the theater a place with more or less truth than reality? Is the theater a democratic space or a space for vanities?

Dancer, artist, human, weeping willow, body-archive, dynamite, queer, green island, body of pleasure, woman in this society. A journey of deconstruction: physical, emotional, sensorial, personal, sociological, human, and imaginary. Melting beauty into monstruous, letting go to sprout again, a metamorphosis that is continuous, fluid, feminine. I dive into sensorial memories, through what the body accumulates, distorts, vomits, metabolises, creates, dreams, lives, loves, leaves, transforms, disgusts, desires. My intimacy as a starting point. A scream. A body available to listen. An act of courage.
