Inserted in European Theater Night, A Classic is presented in Cine Teatro António Lamoso – Santa Maria da Feira, ta show that the most relevant choreographer and Portuguese national dancer Vera Mantero created for ASTA.
A Classic goes through generations. It touches everyone (because it deals with themes that touch everyone) because it persists in collective memory. One classic represents ideas from the time when it is created. A Classic represents feelings of the time when it is created. A Classic Shows Passions intense and multiple. A Classic notes the complexity of his time. A Classic invents the complexity of his time. One classic is an important historical context. A Classic uses (unexpectedly) an unexpected language. A Classic creates expressions, exemplary and unusual. (Does a Classic always use the old spelling agreement ?!). A Classic does not fit into any style (and is possible to create a new style). A Classic is groundbreaking (so why not a Classic?). A Classic hits people’s lives and in the life of (other) works. A Classic is familiar to us. A Classical never stops saying what he has to say. A Classic is inexhaustible. A Classic has effects on consciousness. A Classic is a form of knowledge. A Classic re-opens and rediscovers itself. A Classic reveals. A Hard Classic. A Classic says no to death. This is what we propose to create, A Classic.
