The performance “HURMANO” is created by the Portugese choreographer and dancer Marco Da Silva Ferreira. Hu(r)mano is part of Portuguese Young Artists 2015. The performance was shown during the eleventh edition of Short Theatre Festival in Testaccio Rome.
Do you know that moment in which you see a performance and feel as if you were inside? That happened to me when I was watching this piece. A piece of movement that speaks to the human being, that inevitably makes you identify with some of the things that they are doing, and even more when there are four persons on the scene.
It is a piece that doesn’t matter in which perspective you see it, you will understand it and will perceive it perfectly. The dancers use the whole stage, from the back and the front, right and left and forming parallel lines.
It goes from less to more and that makes you want to keep on watching it and when they reach a climax, you want to dance with them. Silences and repetitive music are alternated to show what we normally do in our life; the daily life of human beings.
