"Comer o Coração de Rui Chafes e Vera Mantero" This film follows the process of creating “Eating Your Heart Out”. This work of art presented at São Paulo Biennal of Arts in 2004, was the first collaboration between the Portuguese artists Rui Chafes (sculptor) and Vera Mantero (choreographer and dancer). The result is a huge iron sculpture where the dancer performs a mysterious play, suspended in the air, with paintings all over her naked body. At the backstage we follow all the events from the idea arrising until the reaction of the public.
