False friends

by Guillem Mont de Palol and Miguel Pereira, 2021

False Friends is the new project by Miguel Pereira co-created with the Catalan choreographer Guillem Mont de Palol. Using the concept “false friends” as a starting point, words with similar spelling or pronunciation, but which sometimes have totally different meanings. Miguel and Guillem try to build a relation of false semantic friendship, positioning themselves in a space of contrast between what is similar and what is different, between them and reality itself, creating an absurd, delirious and fun speech using words, gesture and objects.

This collaboration started in the context of the project CRUZADOS in 2018, an invitation by La Poderosa, in Barcelona, that challenges two artists that haven’t met, to collaborate in a short period of time and share their experiences.
