ON TOUR » GOLDEN
 

 

 

 

GOLDEN is a project that unites two generations of portuguese contemporary dance, Mariana Tengner Barros and Carlota Lagido, two dancers that by means of their performatic afinities can create particular speeches about women, repositioning her place of power in the statement of choreographic contents. It's in this confrontation with their subjective universes that I intend to create an alchemic process that reveals a new state of creation for the two interpreters.

GOLDEN emerges from the underground of Mariana Tengner Barros and Carlota Lagido to transform those places in simulacra of their images through multimedia elements and to contribute with those transmutations to obtain an elixir that ascends to an idea of iconic eternity. Materials of their former performances will be conjured to spread out through a phantasmagoric look of their artistic Alter Egos through resources like video and music.

GOLDEN is about the degradation of the Self, a game of appearances, a dispute of Egos. This "Diva combat" has three goals: the first is transmutate Mariana and Carlota like inferior metals to gold, the second is fabricate their own eternity and the third is the edification of an artificial iconographic life through inanimated performatic materials, creating an utopic clone of their Personas. This combat counts with the dramaturgy of João Manuel Oliveira, gender studies specialist, costumes by Antonio MV and light designer Nuno Patinho.
