“Anachronistic, condensing disparate references, displaced and intense - like a dream. This is the Ninfa that we will try to embody. Through a succession of condensations, hybridizations and transformations we will be lead into situations, events, their sequence, rhythms and moods, and ultimately into sketches of structures, conscious and unconscious. Our strategy: to see-to be-to say – not to tellmirror, or the reflected partner; displacing intensities, is it a corpse or a glass of water?”

Marlene Monteiro Freitas was born in Cabo Verde where she was a member and co-founder of the dance group Compass and collaborated with the musician Vasco Martins. She has studied at P.A.R.T.S. (Brussels), at E.S.D. and at Fundação Calouste Gulbenkian (Lisbon). She is a co-founder of P.OR.K.

Two of Freitas’s works have been presented at Zodiak before: (M)imosa, a project developed together with Trajal Harrell, François Chaignaud and Cecilia Bengolea and Paraíso - Colecção Privada.
