Darling Desperados
alternative theater with virtual reality

Hello? And always by bus to work, but one day everything is different. A global pandemic puts everyone's living conditions at their peak and life in and out of the vehicle will never be the same. Based on a concept ofDarling Desperados, South African playwright Philisiwe Twijnstra wrote the story THE ROAD, which revolves around four characters whose life stories are woven into life and death.

THE ROAD is an award-winning performance about how we humans live and survive based on our different living conditions around the world.

After leaving his destroyed country, Señor Dolores hits the road amid strong winds and storms. He doesn't look for a house or a place to stay, he passes: right arrow in the desired direction. Where risk and insecurity, he finds food and rest. A path of loss and failure, courage, strength and fantasy. Face to face with danger: Señor Dolores moves on, lives and dreams.

sound performance

First of five artistic objects   built from the different stages of grief. 

#1 FLAMBOAIÃ is a sound performance, for a spectator, that starts from the idea of loss, created as a site specific for Mindelo in homage to Samira Pereira.

The absence of bodies - of those who speak and about whom they speak - leads the way proposed to the spectator.  The city becomes the body that one crosses in absence, an island-body that transforms itself in the vital cycles of nature.
