Teatro #2

in this performance, as in estudo para um manifesto, bonneville decided to improvise the entire show. they drew inspiration from their pre-theatre study concept of what it meant to be an actor. this approach was rooted in documentary-style exploration, where the actor embodies themselves rather than creating a character.
bonneville improvised in front of a camera, set in nightshot mode, for one hour, matching the duration of a miniDV cassette, while the audience faced the real-time video projection.

director, performer and producer: miguel bonneville. logistical support: rogério nuno costa, casa conveniente, eira.
