As a child Cláudia Dias was fascinated with Vasco Granja's TV show and the magical universes he would construct using plasticine, cardboard, or a single line. Thirty years later she evokes that world in her performance.

Together with Luca Bellezze, she tells the story of a boy's journey from Syria to Italy. Using a piece of string, she creates a live cartoon. At a time when division lines, borders, barriers, front lines, dramatic lines of refugees waiting to be identified, and hard lines of radical political and religious organisations are our everyday reality, the artists produce a line that unites and can hold the collapsing reality together.
'Tuesday' is the second piece in a seven-year series, 'Seven years seven pieces', which premiered in June 2017. The project has Dias devising a new piece every year. After seven years, each will become part of the series, which will be replayed every day for a whole week.
