The actor and director Pedro Penim was invited by Francisco Frazão and Lola Arias to develop a lecture / performance for Mis Documentos cycle.
Mis Documentos is a concept idealized by Argentine playwright and director Lola Arias and has a minimal format: an artist on stage with their documents. One way to make visible researches that are sometimes lost in an unnamed folder on the computer.
In DOING IT, Pedro Penim confesses a secret passion that takes him very far across the sea of Internet. An innocent and obscure addiction that he never revealed before: his “island collection”. Pedro has been researching, collecting and systematizing information about several uninhabited and/or remote islands for a long time and this piece intends to stage a discourse that gives some clues about this interest in isolation, evasion and in the demarcation of space. In DOING IT, Pedro brings the spectators into the mind of someone who is constantly seeking and makes us think about our own obsessions. What do we do in secret on our computers when no one sees us?
