Created for the atelier of Brazilian’s Choreographers of SPCD, “Céu Cinzento” (Gray Sky), from Clébio Oliveira, aim to the eternal theme of impossible love present in the collective imagination and represented in works such as in Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare. The choreography is inspired by this story and questions: what would be the course of tragedy lovers if they get blind instead of die? "In the work, the tragic end of lovers gives rise to this new version and, within this perspective, the couple loses a kind of maze and tries desperately to find. The play brings up the need of the movement as integrative way of the senses”, says the choreographer.
