A boxing match in 200 probing questions
The Future is it a wave that is crashing towards us, unstoppable and brimming with unknown threat? Or do we have a say in it? Choreographer Cláudia Dias is organising a series of seven meetings with a wide range of politically inspired artists. Seven duets leading to confrontations, frictions and flying sparks.
In Monday, she will share the arena with writer and poet Pablo Fidalgo Lareo. Like boxers, they will pummel one another with the pregnant questions of our age: why are we scared of the other? How can we get through to one another? How can we improve our situation? They will take it on the chin, duck, weave and improvise, segueing effortlessly from the personal to the political, from the concrete to the poetic and from now to tomorrow. After all, you dont have to be a boxer to give the future a shove in the right direction.
