Meio no Meio is the new creation by Victor Hugo Pontes, reflecting a three-year process with an intergenerational group from four different territories – Almada, Barreiro, Lisbon and Moita – joined by other professional performers, in a work that combines and portrays the different artistic paths of those on stage. Following the lives of these participants over the course of three years, crossed by a pandemic, Meio no Meio draws on the ideas of journey and expectation; of memory and autobiography; and the incessant movement of bodies pushed to the limit by Victor Hugo Pontes, in his unique choreographic language. The title of the show derives from a place of possibility (the middle) and from the paths that open before a kind of clearing (that middle). Sometimes these paths are called “future”, or just “life”, or “destiny”, or one of those words that designate what is to come. The show also questions the way we organize and tell our past and point it to the future. Meio no Meio uses documentation and (self) reflection about each of the lives portrayed on stage to build an affective map of memories and possibilities, fixed in Joana Craveiro’s text. All this, to the sound of the intense, but also intimate, warrior and liberating music of Throes + the Shine, which was the music requested by those bodies.
