In darkness all cats are grey
De noite todos os gatos são pardos, 2017
AUDIO PLAY
This audio play is based on the medieval utopia of the Country of Cockaigne - a place of abundant food, pleasant weather and where work is unnecessary. The journey to such country is usually narrated as arduous, taking several years and of enormous expectation. I've transposed this imaginary to the present time: a park in a city at night where hordes of people walk around it without ever finding entrance. In order to reveal how utopias arise from our imaginary and how they can be instrumentalized, I embodied each of the characters with different ambitions and desires, from characters seeking for food and freedom, to stories of exploitation. This work was produced and commissioned by SOLAR, Galeria de Arte Cinemática, Vila do Conde, Portugal.
