CHORUS 1.8 - de composição de um grito
The mouth, restricted, rehearses experiences
of a violent invasion. The burying of speech, the convulsion of words, the
condensation of the voice, repetition.
A scream implodes. A scream explodes.
Particles tear through space to be survival
and creation. Indigo blue conflates materialisation. The dense, implacable,
mutant chorus incites becoming. The emergence of the future erodes the previous
act. "You have to destroy in order to start again". (James Stinson, Drexciya)
CHORUS 1.8 - the composition of a scream,
observes the mouth, whose channels of communicability contain dark residues of
historically violent events. Indigo blue "is the liquid atmosphere of
death and liberation that only the whirlwind of sounds and the infinite shaking
of bodies lets us sense. The urgency to get up, to walk. To get back into the
air." (Branca Clara das Neves)
CHORUS 1.8 is a
tentacular project involving installation, performance, workshops and a
