Micro-piece

by Vera Mantero, 2024

It's my habit not to do major pieces every year, just as a writer doesn't write a novel every year, just as a filmmaker doesn't make a film every year. Each major piece requires time to mature, to gestate, and a creative effort, a creative plunge that cannot be produced continuously, otherwise the work will wear out and lose depth. But there are many materials in each piece that remain to be explored and deepened each time we finish a creation, and which we won't be able to explore and deepen in the next one. In addition, the possibility of making sketches and dance sketches, small compositional studies and deepening ongoing themes, is very important and must be carried out. In every piece we work on there are a number of things that are left hanging, loose ends that can't be grasped due to lack of time or because they don't find their place in the work we're doing. This work with Henrique Furtado and João Bento is intended to be an opportunity to reflect on materials that have been left behind in the process of the piece "O Susto é um Mundo" (2021) and also an opportunity to practise making, composing, returning what is occupying us at the moment into a "performative thing".
