Cordel by Teresa Santos / Poeta de Gandia (2019) is a performance of diabolo and voice inspired in Cordel Literature.
To tell someone – put the diabolo on the floor, roll it from side to side, as soon as it passes in front of you, lift it up and make a small and fast movement like this, up and down with your dominant hand, only your dominant hand (the other is present without strength) – it is like a spear that involuntarily echoes in the head, without often assaulting the conscious with the relevance that this set of simple gestures can take. If the most basic principles of the diabolo can influence the course of a life, I wonder what some right words can do at some right time. Perhaps there is something profoundly poetic in both. Maybe these worlds touch each other.
