The artist’s stadium (ii)

by Elizabeth Trew

She appears  outside the stadium
a lonely phantom
headless girl
once inside
the days of the dictator
a broken away
displaced spirit
Salazar’s girl
lunges
body crunches
twists her torso
performs
over and over
over and over
for an old dictator
outside the stadium

(Untitled Silent video, by Angela Ferreira, Lisbon, 1998.)
