Concepção coreógrafica by Lilian Graça
"Covert" elaborates the idea of a "space between" in an approach that deals with the surface plane to unveil and enter the deep field of the screen. The video thus has the objective of discussing the kinesthetic involvement of the viewer, in which its focus of engagement is triggered by the dynamics between the distances and the movement of moving away and closer to the camera and the dancers. In this way, “Covert” experiences the flow between surface and screen depth as a field of perceptual and body passages.

The body claims more than is ever its right to, intervention and alteration, it is action in constant motion, in search of different spaces, even if it suffers from the marks of the past.

She goes to the street. She wants to dance. She dances naked.
She's get in on and breaks everything. She the chaos master. There is no gas to stop Your Carnival.
