“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 in pursuit of the air that flows in living things: the skin, the lungs, the earth, the galaxy, all bodies that respire. It is also about the absence 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 is a highly musical community art performance, in which a man composes volatile scores together with the instrumental breaths of a woman whilst other women, girls and animals give body to a performance full of invisible words, laced with light, spreading poems and oxygen throughout the landscape, while they dance with the full power of their lungs, as if we are not there watching them.
