These interviews conducted by performer and researcher Sílvia Pinto Coelho focus on the role that procrastination can have on creative processes. Slowing down creation and research can be a way of recognizing that the act of delaying, of making things last, can lead to a fertile process of inventing the unknown. Improvisors and artists from the fields of dance and performance talk about their methodologies and ideas in this reformed version of Procrastination Marathon.
Márcia Lança and João Fiadeiro are artists who develop ways of being on stage, in exploration and in Real Time Composition, in their own unique way. Here they lead us through various paths, in a conversation, waxing as if we were going to continue, continue, continue… “What made us a collective was an exercise of trust and surrender to the unknown, to a type of abyss, an emptiness into which we entered.” (ML).
