Violet Shadows (2018)
by Nando Messias
Nothing is any longer one thing. We needn’t be afraid: We all travel through time. Each of us vacillates between sexes. We can change our future, but our essence prevails.
With his characteristic excitement and wonder, Nando Messias and his extraordinary dance-theatre drags us all into the fantastical world of Orlando: The trumpets peal Truth! Truth! Truth! An apple seller in her cart is still visible beneath the ice of the Thames in the Great London Frost. Standing naked before a looking glass in Constantinople, we realise: he was a woman.
Transformation is the death we die daily.
