Synopsis

This film documents the journey begun in 2014 by Mónica Calle, based on the shows The Seven Deadly Sins by Bertold Brecht and A Boa Alma by Luís Mário Lopes. Later on, even though it is not part of this document, the artistic journey recorded here ended up becoming Ensaio para uma cartografia, a show which seeks a reconnection, through error, failure, insecurity, the inevitability of imperfection, fragility and the transformation of the body, but also of strength, exigency and rigour.
