In Thursday: Abracadabra, Cláudia Dias and Idoia Zabaleta find new uses for worn words. Starting from scratch, they come to an agreement with everyone in the room about the minimum meaning of each word. Peace, bread, work, education — what does it all mean, exactly? By demonstrating the real relationship between things and words and seeking out the hidden names of injustice, inequality and oppression, they look for the magic word that will move bodies, and worlds.
Thursday: Abracadabra is the fourth instalment in the Seven Years Seven Pieces series, a seven-part performance project addressing the concept of an absent or precarious future developed by Portuguese choreographer Cláudia Dias.
