Director Statement

O tremor despedaça o sujeito, mas revela o desejo por algo que lhe falta. Lidamos aqui com o definhamento surgindo da sensação de perda.
Em meio a uma crise, desenvolvi esse projeto junto a minha parceira. Nossa relação que nasceu no movimento, na dança, na cena, retornou a isso para um recomeço. Esse filme une processo artístico à dimensão autobiográfica para lidar com as situações de quase-fim.

The tremor shatters the subject, but reveals the desire for something he lacks. We are dealing here with the depletion arising from the sense of loss.
In the midst of a crisis, I developed this project along with my partner. Our relationship that was born in movement, in dance, on the scene, returned to that for a fresh start. This film unites the artistic process with the autobiographical dimension to deal with near-end situations.
