I started writing TO THE POINT in 2019.
Before covid and those two years that took us five, that shattered our industry and the existence of the pieces created during that time.
Before exposing my transidentity publicly and living in the world from a radically different position as a trans woman.

TO THE POINT carries with it original questions that I was asking myself at that moment of my life from the experience of a cis man. A not really cis man, a non binary person with a feminine gender expression, a social deviant who wondered about gender expression, the binary construction of gender identities, how they are a basis for the maintenance of our social order as well as for the relationships of dominations and violence. With the desire to sabotage them and specifically at that moment to sabotage a form of hegemonic masculinity – of domination in order to move towards more equality and justice.

It is a historical object that is still relevant today and the questions they raised have entered the public space.
I live them and will formulate them differently now and in the future, just like my collaborators who have also changed.

TO THE POINT is a hybrid performance with alternative writing, with song, dance and theater. It is the result of a collaboration with a whole team that gave it its background and final form.
It is the result of long and deep sharing with Soa de Muse and Calixto Neto, of our personal, complex and different stories.
It’s a trio made to measure for its performers, where individualities emerge in solos.
We come together in play, struggle, joy, humor, pleasure, generosity and sensuality.
In an inexhaustible tenderness that we share with the audience, who are invited to leave the position of a shadowy voyeur and to engage with us. You look at us, we look at you, you look at yourself.

The intense bass of the music dialogues with the movements of the pools which become places of intimate, social, geographical and meteorological expressions.
Our power is here in the service of creating a time and a space to do us good and celebrate us in tenderness.

TO THE POINT is a joyful celebration of desire as a life force and of eroticism as a creative power of encounter and transformation, without shame or embarrassment. Here it leaves the intimacy that is reserved for it and takes place publicly.
