WASP (Vespa)

Rui Horta

In their position as double voyeurs – watching others and themselves – the audience fills the gaps of the character on stage, challenging their own notion of public and private. This solo is a possibility, a fractal, a fleeting mark. A wasp inside a head, a thought-gnawing buzz.

Choreographer and performer Rui Horta is a wild veteran, and that nature, audacity and doggedness is what allowed him to get back up on stage after thirty years of absence. Wasp is, as Rui says himself, “ a reduction of man to a tiny particle of the cosmos, contemplated with some loss, a lot of compassion and a good dose of irony.”
