SynopsisHow can we contemplate love politically? How can we contemplate a subject which is normally seen as something belonging to everyone’s intimate and private forum? What is the relationship between affections, and the way we organize ourselves socially and live with one another? And is politics something we only return to during election years? How do we live the politics of our lives, in the privacy of our own homes?
In this performance presentation, the script is built around interviews done with politicians belonging to parties with parliamentary representation, independent politicians, and people connected to social movements, as well as interviews conducted with ex-boyfriends, love letters and fragments of personal diaries. During the show, there will be a recreation of a performance from the 20th century.
This lecture-performance premiered at Negócio/ZDB in october, 2015, within Temps d'Images Lisboa.

Maria Gil(Lisbon, 1978) Creates stripped-down shows based on the word, establishing a direct and close relationship with the spectators; her scripts have as their starting point, autobiographical premises and stories of people and places, which she gathers, intersects and fictionalizes, in order to construct a poetics of daily life. Her work evokes the periphery and marginality, but also vanishing people and places. She collaborates regularly with artists from various artistic fields, namely dance, music, the visual arts and cinema. She also works with several public and private institutions, conceptualizing, developing and directing educational activities and strategies which stimulate the imagination and thought.
