Je suis lent is a performed conference that recounts my personal history with dance, which I deliver by delving into the corpus of intimate images which make up who I am.  I go back along my path as a dancer, crossed by the figures who throughout the years have nourished my imagination.

My story begins in the 19th century temple of academia, which I share with the phantoms of ballet.  I then sidetrack down the route traced by the mythical figures of expressionism, and later I identify with the adventurers of post-modernity.  I join the advocates of new dance, and lose myself enthusiastically along more conceptual paths.  Today I follow a steep and narrow road, and it is there, where I least expect it, that dance appears.

Je suis lent was originally created in Lisbon, in Portugal.  It was last year, as part of a cycle of conférences named A Minha História da Dança, organized by Forum Dança and O Rumo do Fumo, that I tested it for the first time in its portugese version.  It was later performed in March at the Teatro Valle Occupato in Rome, translated into italien.
