While we were all becoming intoxicated by the fecundity of it all they were disguising themselves, so well that they even fooled their own kind! (2015)

Enquanto íamos ficando embriagados pela fecundidade de tudo aquilo, eles disfarçavam-se, de tal maneira bem que até os da sua própria espécie se enganaram!

While we were all becoming intoxicated by the fecundity of it all they were disguising themselves, so well that they even fooled their own kind! is a choreographed walk created in collaboration with Kirsty Roberts, specifically for the Tropical Botanical Gardens of Lisbon (Jardim Tropical de Lisboa). Now a botanical garden, it was created in 1906 under the name Colonial Gardens for the purpose of familiarizing young agronomists with the plants of the colonies. There they would learn, experiment, and practice with imported plants. The performance gathers different narratives that invite the audience into fictions, legends, and narratives that speak of colonization and decolonization processes, as well as of the migrations (of cultures, plants, insects) that ran along these. In late 2016 the artists will publish a small publication linked to this project.
