COUP DE GRACE

premiere maio 2013 - Teatro Sérgio Cardoso, São Paulo - Brasil

 

 

One of finalists of The 26th International Choreography Competition  - Hannover, Germany 

The duet refers to the doubts of accepting a deliberate intervention carried out with the express intention of relieving an intractable suffering, without possibility of cure, be it physical or psychic. The French expression coup de grâce ("mercy shot") means "death" with the intention of ending the suffering of a wounded creature. Is it even possible to "soft, sweet, easy death," without suffering, without pain, to abbreviate one's very great and painful agony?
