Special thanks to António Câmara Manuel, Cristina Piedade, David Miguel, Felix Santana, Isabel Peres, João Galante, João Samões, Nines Gómez, Paula Pereira, Ronald Burchi and Sara Vaz, who collaborated on the original creation in 1997, as well as co-producers Acarte /Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation and O Acto.

This revival is dedicated to the memory of Paula Castro (1968-2007), who was part of the original cast of Gust performers.

In 1997, Gust presented itself as “a work without a theme in advance. But with a predetermined title, preceding the work.” After 26 years, Gust9723 is a work with/about/from this work without a theme in advance, but with a pre-given title, gestures, setting, atmosphere, scenes, sounds, and temporality. However, these pre-data do not necessarily predetermine the play today. Rather, they indicate paths that may or may not be followed. Today, the work with the «work without a theme beforehand» from 1997 is to make this Gust come not from (his) past, but from the renewed desire to offer him (another) future. — André Lepecki
