Choreographer Clara Andermatt joins pianist and composer João Lucas, her long-time collaborator. A complicity nourished by the questioning of the expressive relations between movement and music. Parece que o Mundo, inspired by Italo Calvino’s book Palomar, is a showcase that gathers the spectators of the world that observes and is observed. Conjugating intuition and methodical thought, the attention toward things moves itself through the vastness of what seems – both in the widest relation with the cosmos or with the infinite, but also in a more restricted sense, like day-to-day observations, creating its symbols and its meanings.
CLARA ANDERMATT was born in Lisbon in 1963. She studied dance with Luna Andermatt and graduated from London Studio Center and from the Royal Academy of Dancing, in London. Between 1984-88 she was part of Companhia de Dança de Lisboa (directed by Rui Horta) and between 1989-91 part of Companhia Metros, in Barcelona (directed by Ramón Oller). With her own Company since 1991 she creates and produces numerous works, distinguished with awards and regularly presented in Portugal and abroad.
JOÃO LUCAS was born in 1964 in Lisbon. He is a pianist, a composer and a researcher. He graduated with a high grade in the upper piano course of the Conservatório Nacional
de Lisboa. He collaborated with some of the most important creators of contemporary theater and dance in Portugal and has participated as a composer in more than seventy plays, many of them nationally and internationally awarded.
