Miguel Bonneville's Performance, Evora International Dance Festival, 13/12

Miguel Bonneville presents a performance-conference about the MB#4 performance, which could be considered as an "off version" of his original action. This event is co-produced and organized by the Evora International Dance Festival.

MB#4, in my life, is a step forward. It is to know that my heart still works and that it doesn’t always make mistakes. It is to know that a cycle was closed. But in itself, MB#4 is a step backwards. I wonder if it’s not always like this with me. This attempt of balance between one thing and another. And if I don’t have to win from one side, to lose from the other. Miguel Bonneville

Where: Blackbox CDCE - Évora, Zona Industrial Almeirim Norte, Rua Aníbal Tavares, n.º 2
When: December 13th, 21h30

Miguel Bonneville presents his new MB#6 performance, 13/11 and 14/11

MIGUEL BONNEVILLE will present his new performance at the Graça Brandão Gallery in Lisbon, for the Temps d'Images-Portugal Festival.

Para MB#6, Miguel Bonneville will invite 6 women to go on with his autobiographic research. Instead of referring to himself in the first person, Miguel Bonneville will try to get a new perspective in its work about identity with a multidisciplinary investigation, based on the testimony of 6 women talking about intimacy with a common point between each of them: they were invited to talk about Miguel.

Miguel Bonneville will use the feminine first person as a parabole for all those autobiographic works written by women, who are historically considered as incomplete, discontinued and limited to the private sphere. The use of the women speeches allow him to broaden and deepen his own work about narcissism, intimacy and autobiography, but it's also a way to underline the impossibility to build a continued and complete narrative autobiography. MB#6 stands for an autobiography which would constantly regenerate and regain its accuracy.

Where: Graça Brandão Gallery - rua dos caetanos, 26 (bairro alto), Lisbon When: Temps d'images Festival, 13/11 and 14/11 from 5 to 8 pm.
