“Women inhale the house into the lungs. (…) / Women inhale inwardly / and generate continuously. / They turn into orchards. (…)” Daniel Faria

After the first creation - Eva Poro #1, this Eva Poro #2, continues the investigation of disappearance into the body: a supporting body, a house, vibrating, and alveolar.
This is a performance chasing the air that blown in living things: the skin breathes, the lungs breathe, the earth breathes, the galaxy breathes. It is also about the lack of air in relation to its presence: about how fragility propels the discovery of new and improbable ways or vital spaces, when the breath consumes itself; about resilience as we attempt to breathe into other lungs.

This time, a man composes volatile scores while women, girls and animals give body to a performance full of invisible words, laced with light, spreading prayers, molecules, poems and oxygen through the landscape, while they dance with the full power of their lungs, as if we were not seeing them.
