Two persons facing the unknown.
Two persons searching in their memories, their futures (predicting? not predicting?)
Two persons in research, creating impossible situations. Situations that are contradictory, transitional. Spaces in between.
Two persons talking, remembering that once they were children. That they are children.
Two memories remembering. Listening to other memories and other voices they remember.
Two persons that are not just two persons.
I’m one person, I’m nobody.
« My name is nobody » = « mon nom est personne ». Personne (in French) is a homonym that can mean person or nobody.
And this chair, who is it?
This is nobody.
I’m chair, and you’re table.
And where are we?
We are several people in a space. A space made by various people-things.
Previsão do Tempo is an essay on the passage of time, about letting the unknown enter in to our lives. The piece is a paradox, a space where each fear and incomprehension transforms itself into a playful, sometimes childish, game.

Following this experience he became Fiadeiro’s assistant and performer in “O que fazer daqui para trás”(2015). In 2016 he completed the PEPCC course at Forum Dança.

Following his studies in critical design at Toulouse Fine Art School (France), he studied performance at the Fine Art School of Nantes (France). In 2013, Romain performed and worked on the scenography for “The Outdoor Offices” project proposed by L’Agence Touriste, and assisted Alain Michard on the dance pieces “I Gave It All” and “You Are Here”.
