3 The party (of insignificance) 20th Anniversary of Paulo Ribeiro’ Company Paulo Ribeiro’ Company is celebrating twenty years of existence and in each one there is one or more creations. In this path there is a perpetual movement of exploration of the space, ideas, concepts, doubts, meetings, mismatches, surprises, which is a choreography that sums up all the others in an open space that is delimited by the interior; a dip in the depth of himself with the will to find the best that we can offer to those who decide to share this adventure with us. As Bergman says, “with no you, no I” and this is the beauty of all relationships, especially the relationship between the author and the audience. The creative process is almost always distressing but also festive. Inevitably we celebrate all of our physical and mental possibilities so there is always a delivery beyond us, surprises and celebration!!!!! There is always a dimension of rituals that transforms us, gives us life, changes us and brings us closer to each other. © José Alfredo

© José Alfredo 4 This is my celebration. I want to celebrate to give body to the inner and secret motivations, give substance to the utopia, the expectation, the desire to create a platform of understanding and complicity, not only for the enclosed area of the stage but also extended to everybody that is present, whether passive or active. Because celebration is for all dimensions… Celebration is already a multiple polyhedral of emotions caused by the relationship with nature, with each other and with the immanent forces enjoyed in the externalized joy of its own evocation. One is many; many are one! It is always avoidance of everyday life, transgressional carnival, bad face(s) that hide characters of conventional routines but always body and soul, explosive screaming of joy and freedom. So, celebration can be everything as long as it is a manifestation of pleasure. Even a simple tenderness is a celebration... Paulo Ribeiro and João Luís Oliva
