Play video

What if we could browse back and forward in the movement of time? New Creation invites you to a playful dialogue between two performers solidly equipped with wit, humour and projection screens. Using previous recordings, Filipe Pereira and Teresa Silva create a seemingly infinite mise en abyme, confusing images and reality. Filming is an attempt to survive, but it is also showing a form of death. For that, we need to constantly reformulate, because we need to go on. Don’t we?
