We´ve met as invited artists performing both at the rehears-als of a poetry presentation of the festival Parfums de Lis-bonne at Livraria Ler Devagar – Lx Factory, having before a little presentation in the same festival, years ago , in Casa Fernando Pessoa.
We discover we both came from the same classical studies and struture, and we were “leaving it” for some many mo-ments in our lives, to built our own language.
We discover we were doing it together, at the same time with the same feeling.
And we could not left each other without making music and dancing in that experimental territory together.

La peur de perdre

The sound and the silence, movement and stillness .Closeness and getting appart.
