Rodovalho says that in this work, he experiences expanded and contínuos movements based on the relation of the dancers, who remain all the time in stage. “References for this feature came from large groups of animals in motion and how they develop and relate”, comments the choreographer. This work deals with – what has to happen – in this brief space of time of existence os this great group, related mainly to some tyoe of pleasure. Therefore, the name Melhor Único Dia - in English: Best Single Day. To try to translate, in some way, the short existence that is expressed through group movement, says Rodovalho.
