Production Details / Press Releases
Edivaldo Ernesto’s “Tears”, conceived and choreographed in 2015, is the journey of a man for whom rules turn into uncomfortable characters. He is trapped between fear and wonder, feeling small and lost, afraid of vague feelings, plagued by doubt. The 40-minute solo performance by the Mozambican dancer, choreographer and lecturer darts between implosion and explosion. He flings himself from claustrophobic corners into ever-changing situations: reflections and reactions, dynamics and rhythms, unpredictable bursts of energy. In the same breath and with great sensitivity he contrasts figures of movement with the accompanying music. This makes for an unbreakable tension between performer and audience.
