A son trying to reconstruct his family.
A performance about a family reunion.


Pedro Antunes is a young Portuguese artist who has been living and working in London for a long time. The existencial condiction – many years of separation from his real family - made him develop this work, in an attempt to create a live family re:construction: the re:enactment of a re:union he never lived in reality. Together with the audience members, the performer re:creates different episodes of a happy family: he is always the “son”, while the spectators assume the roles of different family members. In this fictional set, the autobiographical reality of the performer emerges in the gaps and lapses of memory. The reality of the autobiographic identity of the son (Pedro Antunes) is mingled with the fictional recontruction of the family. The result is an experiment shared with the audience.

A Missing Part is an exploration about Pedro Antunes’s relationship with his family, as well as it is about his decision of being apart from them, the need to lie about his missing parts, and the need of a family to hide absence of its missing son. This performance reflects about the reorganization of a family, when one of its members is missing: how does this social formation works without one of its parts? How can the family replace that missing part? What are the stories that live inside his mind to replace his absent father and mother, who are away from him?

Pedro Antunes is a theater creator, who was born in Lisbon. He got his MA Contemporary Performance Making at Brunel University and, since then, he has been working, performing, and collaborating with a variedty of theater companies and international artists, such as rotozaza, Robin Deacon, Tik Tak Boom, La Pocha Nostra and Cataphonic – artists who develop a creative work predicated on the will to push forward the limitations of theater language. In 2005 he created his first work, Narrow Room, a theater and movement/gesture creation which premiered in London. After this first creation Pedro Antunes developed an installation to the Camberwell Arts Festival, called Wrapped Bodies (London, 2006). More recently he co-created A Noite da Galinha Gorda (Arraiolos, 2009), a surrealist tale presented at a backyard in Arraiolos, and he is now developing with the company Big Odd a triptych of shows about family: The Missing Parts – The Live Reconstruction of a Family (London, 2008 / 09); A Broken Part (London, 2009 - 2010) a theater opera about the tragedy of a mother and A Missing Part (in-progress). In his work he tries conceive creation that explore the intimate nature of human relationships, experimenting on the interaction between theater and visual arts, and in the permanent attempt to bring people together in a celebration, which can be a party or an informal encounter, and in which spectators face a sense of displacement. Pedro’s artistic work has been funded and supported by Colecção B (Évora, Portugal), Quarta Parede (Covilhã, Portugal), Performas (Aveiro, Portugal), Performance Initiative Network (London, UK) and The Scene Pool (Londron, UK).
