PREMIERE | March 29 - April 3

Black Box - CCB, Lisboa [Portugal]


What’s in a name? That which we call a rose
By any other name would smell as sweet.
Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet


History has a full repertoire of names: Nikolai Gogol, Antony and Cleopatra, Hedda Gabler, Gianni Schicchi, among many others.

Are they just literary products or have they already become vital organisms? I never met them and yet they are always in my mind. In TOP MODELS, as a way of not forgetting, I decided to record anonymous names, to turn my friends into protagonists of things left to tell. I don’t know if they will remain in history, but they will have an identity card and pay their fees. Susana Pomba is the first text of a long cycle to come.
