"Sublime anger is a feeling, a restlessness, a question about existence, about life, between death and rebirth...
It flows like liquefied matter and spirit, an alchemical, vegetable, mineral, flaming, vaporous mixture...
Ascents and descents of a body and a soul that search in the dream and in reality for something more...
Hands and looks that scrutinize the wood that makes culture and the land that sustains nature...
Falling asleep and waking up among fallen leaves and fragments of iridescent transparencies of a unity or plenitude lost or to be reinvented... ". Julio Martin da Fonseca

«Sublime enfado» has as its raw material, a first meeting I had with Jùlio Martín and the plastic artist Dina Figueiredo. Together we made a trip to Évora to see the stained glass window of the Resurrection made by Dina for the Church of S. Francisco in Évora, Portugal, a work inspired by the representation of Christ on the way to Calvary with the cross on his back, O Senhor dos Passos.
The stained glass window evokes a reflection on life, death and resurrection, from which a dramaturgy transcends that confronts us with a sublime challenge, faced with the immobility of a showcase and its dimensions, the mobility of dance and how to unite both artistic languages. From the glass colors arises the need of nature that led us to film in the natural and human landscapes of the history-filled architecture of the Superior Institute of Agronomy of the University of Lisbon. The combination of elements, such as ashes, leaves, earth, wooden stairs, colored glass, the dancer's body, and everything else, is made sublime thanks to the creative magic of an eye that looks through a lens. , and perpetuates the magical moment.
I never cease to be amazed by the creativity of these Portuguese artists. Thank you all". Alice Soto
