Invited by Queer Lisboa to mark the 25th anniversary of the festival, Rafaela Jacinto and Eduardo Batata present works inspired by the film Un chant d’amour (France, 1950, 26'), by Jean Genet. The film, shown on the opening night of the first edition of the festival, is now included in two sessions where xs artists propose a three-dimensionality, physical and presential, of details that make this work a milestone in the history of queer cinema.
This performance was born from the proposal to observe his Un chant d’amour and reflects on the perennial love of detail (there is a nostalgic feeling that Cinema should always be like this…). The agreement is perhaps to abolish the verbal language that so imprisons our senses and prevents us from intimacy. Bring the public close to you to "Sing a Song of Love" with children's dolls made of wool and make their silent imagination pulse full of fantasy and desire. (R.J.)
