Uma Água Por Favor – Performance

The night is not only made of Puntz Puntz. Drinks colored like a rainbow of bad decisions. Everyone speaks the same language. Smoke and loud music. Puntz Puntz. A dancing body against a dancing foot. Dancing with the eyes, dancing with the fingers, dancing on weak knees but with an empowered soul. Puntz Puntz. Glasses raised, no lyrics but everyone singing in unison. Troubled journey surrounded by sweat, epiphanies and unknown new best friends. Puntz Puntz. Interruption. Serious conversations alone with the bathroom mirror. A Classic Neon ritual. Every weekend. The morning after the night before. Mouth dry, or busy. At the end of the day, it was just another night.

*** Entrance 3 EUR – Door open 6 pm ****
