NEW CREATION » THE WEATHER™
THE WEATHER™ is a dance performance created by the kaleidoscopic effect of layering duets: Mariana Tengner Barros and performer and creator Elizabete Francisca, duet between them and dancer and choreographer Luís Guerra, crossing the real and the virtual, between two-dimensional video image and the real time image of the moving body, between the whole and the psychedelic band from Cacilhas- JESUS K & the sicksicksicks, without forgetting the all-important interaction between performance and audience.
This voluptuous mix of TV mimics the american model- indigent version, inhabited by weird characters that we identify as archetypes of the televison imaginary, more dead than alive, caramelized in the thick heavy environment of the real.
THE WEATHER™ sets the sign of the times, as if we were panicking before the psychedelic zapping of the collective unconscious. Exquisite corpse that draws on references from Kenneth Anger films, the bizarre characters of David Lynch, that hosts ghosts dances from Mary Wigman or Anita Berber (and other more obscure shamans). This zapping is born in that limbo between the absurd and the very serious, leaving us adrift in the vast sea of another state of consciousness.
Puzzle of images, ideas, sensations, texts and textures, that invoke the cosmic dance between all these elements, like a storm, opening new windows of perception.
