Sónia Baptista opens the doors of Studio 1 at Estúdios Victor Cordón to show a collection of small things. Things that represent the beginning of her next piece, in which she will return to the format of short pieces to represent a fifth season of the year: late summer.

While, twenty years ago, my first series of short pieces was about the end of youth, now, this second series of short pieces will be about the end of adulthood. While my first series of short shows celebrated a summer flourishing with desire and possibilities, this one marks the end of summer and the scent of oncoming autumn, of changes in the air, in body and in spirit, of becoming accustomed to a body in transformation and a new state that arrives, is accepted, and is welcomed. Chinese philosophy speaks of a fifth season of the year, late summer, an expectant period, of preparation for a new stage, serene and comforting. In the timeline of my life, I feel and see myself here, experiencing a late summer, preparing myself for the second half of my life physically, emotionally, artistically.


It is said that summer is nostalgic, that it brings many memories, memories of other summers. These short performance poems will be, perhaps, at heart, summer postcards. Wish you were here…
