Refuse – Residency with Anthi Kougia and Mafalda Miranda Jacinto
This is the fourth creation of the Greek-Portuguese artist duo Anthi Kougia and Mafalda Miranda Jacinto. This project once again exposes the artistic complicity between the two artists, referring to a Becktian idea of infinite waiting. Using "tableaux vivants", the artists propose to play with the idea of a show that never starts. Triggered by their own expectations, and based on a guessing game, they conjure fantasies and reinvent the space, transforming its topography.
From a waiting room, the space will be transformed into an action room; a transitory space, unexpected and full of twists and turns, where the dramaturgy will be woven over the possibilities.
