"GRACE: John, I don't feel confortable like this.
JOHN: Yeah, I know. I know it's hard to stay here. I know you are afraid. I know you don't trust me much. I know you don't believe in us, together.
GRACE: It's almost twelve.
JOHN: When it's twelve, I am going to say something important. Are you ready?"
"GRACE AND JOHN" comes from the collaboration between the photographer Patrícia Almeida and the performers Cláudia Dias and António Pedro Lopes at the time they were rehearsing the play "Where Does the Light Go when it's Off" by the Portuguese choreographer João Fiadeiro. Through daily rehearsals, the performers started to create two characters, Grace and John, whose relationship is ambiguous and flexible: wife and husband? lovers? brother and sister? simples friends? This ambiguity gives birth to unexpected and slightly absurd dialogues.
