by Patrick Murys

What if from the imperfection of reality as we live it, we create a body? An existence where the rawness of bodies is combined with the magic of our imagination? What if from this composition of two worlds we called Gabo?

Gabo is a puppet who, together with his fellow dancers, questions his own reality, his limits and his place in a space of freedom always moved by the desire to live.

A compliment to ugliness and diversity, Gabo is a children’s and family show, where differences are placed as a real and concrete element and for the judgment and analysis of young people and children. The difference or equality, the ugly or the beautiful, bringing it closer and farther away, are the issues that the presence of Gabo awakens on the scene and that will help to seek within our humanity our greatest strength, in this creation for Dançando com a Diferença.
