Todos os inícios acabam em dó

© Vera Marmelo


All beginnings end in a C is a collection of beginnings. It is a play, a book, a record and a reading session, potentially.

Two bodies push each other, in order to know each other. A stage begins to melt. Doors open at the far end of an empty room. A landscape, a horizon, a drawing. The inundation is noticed only when water reaches the knees. A postcard which begins with the phrase c’est un début. Some unsent letters and others not replied to. A song whose excerpts end with the C note. An end without a C. An emptying of a body inside. and the possibility of starting everything anew, continually.

Through movement, the word, drawing and music, a multiplicity of beginnings is being built and dramaturgically stitched together between the territories of the real and the imagination, between biographical histories and their fiction.
