Sticky Stage

DFS (CGB, WM, Sara Pereira)

In the performance Sticky Stage DFS proposes a rehearsal situation the within a dystopian landscape mixed with a musical soundtrack. The musical rehearsal includes poems, melodies and songs from different sources: from Jules Dassins film The Rehearsal (1974) to Lana del Rey, Roxy Music, Virgin Prunes, Frederico García Lorca, Jimmy Scott and Rihanna. DFS builds a temporary space in which to take up our fatigue and our dreams in order to approach a tender imagination. The long intervals of repetition of the different elements that constitute the performance are characteristic to group rehearsals, they propose a persistance, as the persistance of the bonding among the participants of a rehearsal and the persistance of the joy of making art. It insists on the fact that we will sing again the song, we will recite again the poem and the text and that we will sleep in the same space, dreaming together. Who will guard our dreams?
