and you, who are you bringing?

"And you, who are you bringing?" It is a performance of transdisciplinary creation, dance, theater, music. An experience where anonymous people, enthusiasts, observers and habitual receivers of an artistic expression are the interpreters of this work.
Discovering, narrating the story that the public has to tell.
A performance that, due to its characteristics of creation in situ, in the place of representation, will be unrepeatable, unique and unpredictable.

  • Direction and creation: Alice Soto and Julio Martin da Fonseca.
  • Duration: 50 minutes.
  • Premiere September 21, 2017, Antonio Assunçao Theatre-Studio, Almada, Portugal.
  • Aimed at young people and adults


"And you, who are you bringing?" it is an experience of collective encounter, creation and expression, celebrating identity and memory, the place of the body and imagination, exchange and artistic transformation.

In addition to bringing a friend or acquaintance who also brings you,
Who else do you bring, in your body and in your mind?
Who do you bring or what do you bring inside of you, that you have never been able to express yourself with confidence and freedom?
What questions, desires, concerns, memories, landscapes, times, voices, pains, images, people, flavors, places, bodies, pleasure, smells, forgetfulness, feelings and joys do you bring to you?
Who do you talk to and what do you talk about when you are alone with yourself?

We propose the creation of a time in which we can expand what we carry inside, and share it freely, without judgement, until words are no longer enough and we have to dilute them in our bodies, and until movement is no longer enough and we have to condense it into one word.
Beyond performance, dance and theater, but with the freedom to summon them, what we are looking for is the construction of a place and a moment where we can breathe what we are, what we feel, what we think, what We imagine, what we dream... and always carry it inside, like an interior garden, like a nut, until we can once again open the doors and share it...

"And you, who are you bringing?" It is a performance of transdisciplinary creation, dance, theater, music. An experience where anonymous people, enthusiasts, observers and habitual receivers of an artistic expression are the interpreters of this work.
Creating a show whose protagonists are really those spectators who occupy a seat, it is only a physical change of place.
A performance that, due to its characteristics of creation in situ, in the place of representation, will be unrepeatable, unique and unpredictable.

Laboratory Call:
The project is configured through a laboratory in open call to all types of public, with or without artistic experience, aged from 16 years onwards.
