DO SOLO AO DUETO
A RESEARCH PERFORMANCE
Experience the spaces is the natural experience of our existence.
The work “Do Solo ao Dueto, a research performance” reflects on the internal and external relations of the artist with himself and the physical space through movement and moving image, how we express this experience is still in search.
Questions that are explored by the choreographer, visual artist Anderson Carvalho
What do we express exactly when creating a dance movement?
What does the architecture of the buildings surrounding you, and the environment reflect exactly on your creative process?
Does it reflect the way we consider space or the way we consider ourselves?
5 artists receives a rough idea with instructions for setting, type of movements, recording method, etc., but with a room/ space for the spontaneous real live occurrences, interaction with the environment, and the creativity of the parties involved.
The dancers do not get the music beforehand but are asked to perform the movements without.
The recordings received back are full of surprises, and with images that are sometimes art in itself. The choreographer then creates a choreography post recording, through the process of editing the videos, and adding the music.
Using many different techniques, a video emerges with many different layers, both from a video editing point of view, as well as abstraction levels and meaning.
