But the present, should it always be present, and never pass into time past, verily it should not be time, but eternity.- Saint Augustine
The initial space in "Everlasting" is a place of memories of a previous existence.
A disruption took place. We are faced now with a space to re-explore, to re-occupy. A landscape is being gradually drawn from the movement of two bodies, their transformation from the problematics of engagement, adaptation versus inadaptation. There is an important plasticity aspect in this piece. The materials are precarious and they create an image of appropriation of the stage and of artistic territorialization of a place, the statement of a poetic disenchantment metamorphosed into building an universe of eternal becoming. - Telma João Santos
