What my dance says

Vera Mantero



60' | 10 FEV FEB | 10PM

Serralves Auditorium

In the artistic process of the choreographer Vera Mantero is exemplary her continuous ability to discuss ideas and to react to junctures/scenarios that characterize the contemporary reality, to share them after with artists, performers, theorists and audiences, depending on her motivations and artistic expressions. For the artist questioning is imperative and acting is presenting.

The Vera Mantero documentary by Cristina Ferreira Gomes reveal how, for Mantero, life is a terribly complicated and rich phenomenon and the artistic work a continuous fight against the impoverishment of the spirit.

Filmed over the course of a year, between the cities of Porto and Lisbon, the documentary also follows, in an intimate way, the creating process of the piece A fright is a whole world, by Vera Mantero. At the same time, it takes us on a journey through the pathway of one of the most important contemporary artists.
