André “Speedy” Garcia: “O truque para me fazeres apaixonar pelas coisas é fazeres-me entender o seu porquê”

 

Nasceu dentro de uma família de artistas e a ligação de Speedy com a arte aparece cedo. Desde uma irmã a dar aulas de música a um pai saxofonista, a relação desenvolve-se rapidamente mas só mais tarde a dança assume um papel de maior destaque, como uma ponte entre a música e a expressão que André procura dela | Por Carolina Costa

A relação entre André Garcia e o que viria a ser a sua “arte” dá-se de forma muito natural, com uma valiosa vertente jazz. Para Speedy, a dança começou a afirmar-se por volta dos seus 15 anos, entre tentativas de moonwalking ao som de Michael Jackson. Numa tarde de verão, juntamente com o seu melhor amigo, decidem experimentar os básicos do hip-hop que viam nos videoclips e, com um rádio e meia dúzia de pilhas, dirigem-se ao parque infantil mais próximo (em Palmela, onde residia na altura), para se “atirarem” ao que seria um talento por descobrir. A brincadeira transformou-se em rotina e a imitação de vídeos tornou-se no desmembrar do movimento para sentir a sensação correta. Acima de tudo, a consciência das partes do corpo que são precisas para controlar certos movimentos começou a ter um papel fundamental.

 

“A partilha era a peça-chave desta crew que tinha como lema ‘Each One Teach One’”

 

Começa a juntar-se um grupo mais sólido que posteriormente se transforma numa crew, o que permite aprenderem com os erros uns dos outros e limarem arestas em conjunto. Eram todos altruístas o suficiente para despenderem do seu tempo a ajudar o outro, a partilha era a peça-chave desta crew que tinha como lema “Each One Teach One”. Ainda no mesmo parque infantil um de cada vez, para não baterem com os pés nos baloiços, fizesse chuva ou sol lá se encontravam eles a treinar. Alguns dias chegavam a dançar com três camisolas vestidas a tremer de frio, se começava a chover e recolhiam o tapete para debaixo de um telheiro à espera que, quando a meteorologia o permitisse, pudessem retomar a dança. Para além do b-boying também se começava a interessar por outra vertente: o graffiti. Este surgiu como uma necessidade de se centrar em si mesmo e estar realmente focado a criar algo. Todas estes componentes contribuíram para que Speedy fosse cada vez mais puxado para dentro da cultura hip-hop.

 

“O sentimento de pequenez, que podia ter sido desmotivante, foi como um estímulo”

 

Os pais não achavam muita piada ao estilo de música. Nos anos 90, o hip-hop nos Estados Unidos estava envolvido em vários escândalos, nomeadamente a rivalidade entre East e West Coast. O pai considerava a cultura uma má influência até ver uma mudança na autoconfiança de André, o breakdance – mais do que algo que lhe dava gozo – era um grupo no qual ele se sentia integrado e que tinha um objetivo comum: o progresso de todos. Em 2003, um ano após terem começado a dançar, participam na sua primeira battle no campeonato nacional de b-boying. Das três da tarde às três da manhã sempre a dançar, descobrem um novo mundo de break em Portugal. O sentimento de pequenez, que podia ter sido desmotivante, foi como um estímulo para se agarrarem a esta paixão com mais força e quererem evoluir ainda mais.

 

“Todas estas influências, pessoas, músicas, foram como peças de um puzzle que ainda se está a montar mas que cada vez mais está a ganhar forma”

 

A arte surgiu como o seu maior veículo de liberdade de expressão. A música, a dança e a expressão artística, bem como a ligação entre estas, faziam com que o hip-hop fosse orgânico e não tivesse limites. Em 2012 teve a oportunidade de trabalhar com André Mesquita, um conceituado coreógrafo que, tal como Speedy, não via limitações nos estilos de dança em termos conceptuais de movimento. Em março de 2017 deu início a uma campanha de crowdfunding, com o objetivo de angariar vinte mil euros para colocar uma prótese. Esta contou com o apoio de muitos, entre eles Slow J que convidou Speedy para participar no videoclip de “Arte”, primeira faixa do seu último álbum, The Art of Slowing Down. A ideia da colaboração surge ainda antes de se conhecerem pessoalmente: foram dois artistas com formas de expressão diferentes que se ligaram intimamente pela mesma visão de arte, encontrando-se como “dois monges da meditação” para a realização de um sonho.

 

“Pareço uma criança a aprender a andar mas com as mãos”

 

O objetivo foi alcançado levando Speedy à cidade que inspirou o movimento em que se insere, Nova York (Bronx), para receber um novo antebraço. Este processo de conhecer a cultura hip-hop e as ruas onde esta nasceu, fê-lo também centrar-se em si mesmo e perceber o que queria realmente para o seu futuro. A adaptação à prótese foi lenta e gradual, “tal como um skater se torna um com o seu skate, a prótese é como uma prancha de skate a quem me tenho de habituar.” Agora com 31 anos, tudo o que veio a consolidar com a prática tem de ser reformulado, os vícios antigos precisam de ser “apagados” em termos de postura para conseguir fazer deste “objeto” parte do seu corpo.

“A sensação que tens quando conquistas um tipo de movimento, com aquela dificuldade do break, há-de ser o mais parecido com o ter um filho. É veres a nascer de ti uma sensação que ninguém pode provocar sem seres tu, faz-te sentir com super-poderes”. André vê a dança como um vício, a procura de sensações novas, o querer mais até que passa a ser uma viagem dentro de si próprio, um egocentrismo em forma de movimento que, ao mesmo tempo, é uma forma de se ligar à música e de mostrar o que está a sentir.
