Starting off from a drawing produced on a summer camp at Primary School of Campo de Ourique in which the traces of pencil were deleted by an eraser, I noticed that erasing without leaving any trace was impossible. After this episode, I spent a year drawing. I used to select a moment on a day that has happened on a specific space and draw the course that other people and I had done in that place. Thus, in order to enable movement in the sheet of paper it was constantly necessary to erase ourselves and redraw us in other area of the sheet. I realized that the courses and movements of the people in the drawing could be reconstructed through the traces left from the act of erasing. I placed this question on the stage, transferring from the use of paper sheet as the support to the use of space as the support. I kept the paper sheet and worked it on studio making it interact with me. Out of these experiences, that were initially reduced to the transformation of sheet of paper as a matter in other matters, it came out a series of actions with men and women in paper. These characters are exposed to a sequence of happenings that determine their ending or continuation in the piece. A city of paper starts slowly gaining form.
