Victor Hugo Pontes stages three dancers imagined by writer Gonçalo M. Tavares for this new creation.Abelard, Adler and Hadrian are Os Três Irmãos: when they are in that non-place, they look for their parents’ tracks, mark their absence in chalk, wash, eat together at the table, carry each other’s bodies in ritualised sacrifice, carry themselves on their shoulders, live on the run, play the dangerous game of encountering the past.Abelard, Adler and Hadrian try to make their connection to the earth and survive each other’s existence, even if it has been potholed by a drill, wrapped in a bundle of clothes, carried in a wheelbarrow.
