Porto-based Brazilian choreographer Renan Martins creates his first full evening solo performance in dialogue with DJ Dovecake and with the dramaturgical support of Colline Etienne. SATURNO, A FESTA! is built around the Return of Saturn. An astrological transit mainly known for its intense and transformational power, both psychologically and spiritually.
Renan Martins creates a fictional clubbing situation where pop music is the engine for movement. He presents himself as Saturnian channel through which different personas, stories and pop references are expressed. Through constant and slow morphing, he travels back and forth from personal traumas to MTV music videos, from folk dances to dramatically charged images. The dance here is offered at such slow tempo, that the space between movement and music becomes so dense you could almost grab it.
