To Repeat until transformation could be the motto for this brief workshop. To repeat words and movements that lead us to other words and movements looking to awake a flow of unusual associations from each participant’s imaginary.

Sofia Dias & Vítor Roriz have been collaborating since 2006. Having movement and gesture as their basis, they have broaden their research to the ductile nature of the word, questioning the limits of language and representation. In their ten years of collaboration they have presented about fifteen pieces in 17 countries. They teach workshops and classes regularly. Their increasing interest by ways of sharing and reflection among pears has lead them to organize several residencies and artist meetings since 2012, such as the Aware project in the context of the Alkantara Festival. As a duo they have been collaborating with other choreographers, visual artists and theatre directors such as Catarina Dias, Lara Torres, Marco Martins, Clara Andermatt, Mark Tompkins, Gonçalo Waddington / Carla Maciel, Tim Etchells and Tiago Rodrigues.
