EU – European Union (short film)

EU, European Union
Directed by Renata Ferraz
Performed by Dani d’Emilia (using personas from my personal archive)
Lisbon 2012

In 2012 I was living in Lisbon and preparing new material to present in an upcoming performance with La Pocha Nostra at FIT – Festival Internacional de Teatro de São José do Rio Preto (Brasil).This short film was born out of an exchange with Renata Ferraz (brasilian actress and video maker) in which I asked her to help me as an ‘outside eye’ to help me polish the actions I was rehearsing for my new work and in exchange she asked me to use some of them in the context of this short film she directed.
