"Slot", by Eduardo Batata

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.

"Slot" is a solo that explores the dimension of touch, deprivation and the enclosed body. A proposal for parallelism between a prison cell and a peep show, where the body is seen through a crack. "Slot" is also a tear from which someone becomes marginal, a cut in the expected normality that breaks linearity and conditions the future. The existence of a gap also implies the creation of a space, an interval, an escape, a place. (EB)
