ATLAS (2011) de Ana Borralho e João Galante #performance


"Se 70 ex-camionistas e futuras proprietárias de sex shop incomodam muita gente,
71 ex-camionistas e futuras proprietárias de sex shops incomodam muito mais"

100 people on stage. A landscape of people with different kind of professions, claiming their position on society. The performance was inspired by the children song 'If one elephant disturb many people, two elephants disturb much more, if two elephants disturb many people, three elephants disturb much more, ...' . During the all performance, people come and go like in a catwalk, in waves, each at a time says the phrase but instead of 'elephant' they say their own profession. Ex: 'If 4 Visual Artists disturb many people 5 Visual Artists disturb much more'. The performance starts with 1 person and ends with 100. The first half of the phrase is said only by the person who entered and the second half of the phrase is said also by the chorus of people that are already on stage.
