O2 it's the most recent creation from Company PIA, a Performance that through the languages of Physical Theater and Animated Forms, invites the public to reflect on how society could survive, where technology fades human relations and the access to oxygen becomes a luxury.
An intercultural public art project, that borns in early 2019 at Macao city, where records of alarming levels of pollutant particles are beginning to recur. An idyllic scenario, but for inappropriate reasons, for the creation of a work that arises with the purpose of sensitizing others to an ever greater need to find sustainable practices as a way to overcome the adverse environmental changes that have become today, transversal to all.
In contemporary times, Art presents the opportunity to inhabit artistic worlds, where creative and critical interrelations stimulate our senses, breaking concepts, hybridizing conceptions, articulating and crossing artifacts and processes, thus opening new possibilities.

"In a fragile and uncertain future, a world dwarfed by unbridled modernization emerges, suspended by the few memories that still echo in resilient bodies in the incessant search for the vital element that supports them to Life."
