Pinacoteca do Estado de São Paulo Collection
A small puppet theater features three characters lit by a limelight and framed by velvet curtains. Perhaps animated by what Alain Badiou indicates as the “imperative of saying” in Beckett; these figures tremble but cannot enunciate anything at this moment. Vibration is just the irresistible desire to express, even without articulating a speech. In this way, a dramaturgy of movements is created. It is difficult to claim that there is listening and response: the movements – even if in sequence – are generated in a random order and each time different from the previous one.
