"Under the pretext of the 500th anniversary commemoration of the circumnavigation trip of Fernão Magalhães, I have created this show that attempts, based on the legacy and consequences of this feat in our History, to reflect the dance we do and need nowadays.
When I began to conceive this project, I could not imagine how complex and at the same time stimulating it would be to dive into this adventure.
I accepted the challenge to work from this event knowing only a growing desire to leave my comfort zone and share a new experience, to rediscover a new energy that I had long felt dormant in me.
During the process I encountered several difficulties, from the confrontation with such a delicate and fracturing theme as this proposal, to various setbacks that arose along the way. This play premiered in Montevideo in December 2019, unfinished, irresolvable perhaps, always in the attempt that time and distance would help clarify the very complex issues it raised.

In the meantime, when we were going to present the play in Portugal, which should have happened first in 2020 and now in 2021, the pandemic happened, personal health problems occurred and once again its resolution and continuity were put to the test.

This film/document is intended on the one hand to share our rich and troubled experience of this journey, while at the same time trying, by revisiting the past, to project and glimpse a possibility for the future."
