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.

In a restless night's sleep, Anna-Belle faces unconscious questions, unable to distinguish between dream, reality and technology. Oscillating between different quantum dimensions, Love, Hate, Indifference and Consciousness personify, disputing the attention of the young girl. In this complex and tempting obsessive process, Mother Nature and her Guardian Angel help her search her consciousness in a choreographed magnetization.

Cinematography by Pedro Gus
Instigated by Covid-19 / Quarantine Challenge, Georgia and Pedro resume the material recorded in the month prior to the quarantine of citizens residing in Brazilian territory and wonder what movement resonated with the city's vibration. "Din" starts from this questioning seeking to bring the city traces that are left in our body. Understanding that the material is also composed of empty spaces, the choreography of body and video researches movement as a reflection of noises that fill and permeate the space. Thus, distorted and overlapping vibrations of the strings of the rabeca (Brazilian instrument) generate impulses that have not seen trajectory.

Three bodies become one. This being goes slowly through space, taking on different forms. Dissolution of the skin, the edges. A being that reinvents itself and integrates itself with space and its textures.

Directed by Francisco Miguez
Produced by Amanda Carvalho, Mauricio Battistuci
Choreography and dancing by Bibi Dória
Music by Sebastián Diaz
Cinematography by Mauricio Battistuci
Every Point in a Curve is an open space for impermanent movement. Impermanent in the sense of an aimless, haphazard wandering. A movement with no certain starting point and no certain arrival. This uncertainty becomes matter, through which dance and video editing converse. Escaping predictable inertia, a search for constant new beginnings.

Music by DJ Dolores
Cinematography by Renato Stockler
Looked at the living room. She saw herself in prison. A beautiful hanging cell.Forty meters from the ground. The bright blue from the box. Strange voices in the air, dulling the senses, sucking all your air. The voice emanating from the box. Tell her what to do: Food, clothes, desire. Where to go, what to think.
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.
