Recuperar o Corpo is a collection of solos by a group of artists whose performances, designed for stages that aren’t usually stages (bathrooms, basements of old bars, tinsmith’s shops…), are marked by the relationship between art and body and by the need to understand the human being and his relationship with his own body. This project, directed by Miguel Bonneville, brings together shows by Carlota Lagido, Maria Duarte and João Rodrigues, Odete, Rita Só and Mónica Calle, Sónia Baptista, Tiago Barbosa and Tiago Vieira. They all come together in a comprehensive theme: the body of the performer-creator, based on the premise that there is no art without the body. In doing so, there is the great purpose of recovering a pre-reflexive aesthetic body that makes of its existence a contemplation that unveils its madness, in opposition to the general thought that, in the unveiling of madness, what one will find is essentially a depressive or violent body. The body here is a singular body that is experienced in the first person and which rebels so as not to allow itself to be reduced to the exterior and geometric point of view that places it in space and domesticates it. Ultimately, these solos could be extensions of each other. They unveil the imaginary of artists who do not allow themselves to be imprisoned.
