by Patrick Murys


What if from the imperfection of reality, as we live it, we create a fiction? A place where the rawness of bodies is combined with the power of our imagination?

“GABO”, a creation by Patrick Murys for Dançando com a Diferença,  it is a children's and youth show where differences are highlighted so that young people and children can do their own analysis.

The name of the show is also the name of the puppet who, like his fellow dancers, travels the stage to question his own limits and place. The difference and equality, the ugly and the beautiful, the reality and the illusion, its limits and its place, are issues that the presence of “GABO”, puppet manipulated by the dancers, awakens on the scene, to take us to the meeting of a greater force within our humanity.

Premiere:  11th of December at 21h00 at Teatro Viriato (Viseu)
