On stage, a holographic lake and smoke. In the distance, sounds of uprising and, with them, a strange figure in silhouette. Gradually, we make out a faun who inhabits this still confused space and explains to us how the story begins. Someone in the audience asks for Odette, the principal ballerina. The piece falls apart. The performer no longer knows where he is, what he is standing on, what he is doing, what he is saying. These descriptive phrases are still the prologue. The ghost of Odette comes onto the stage and the piece begins.
Gonçalo C. Ferreira was born in Porto, in 1995. In 2010 he finished the 5th year of music studies at AMCC (Porto), and in 2013 he completed the performing arts course at Academia Contemporânea do Espetáculo, in Porto. He has since developed his own creations (for the most part performances), making this the central focus of his work.
