There are five recurring themes in these three films (one at Teatro da Politécnica and two at the “Casa-animal”) that premieres the artist’s work in Portugal: color, ritual, movement, stairs / steps and textiles, inspired In the design and set design of Adolphe Appia, in the dance of Rudolph Laban, in the work of the Judson Dance Theater, in the movement studies of Samuel Beckett and in the musical indeterminacy of John Cage.

The film “Die Straße” shows a man entering a strange community where he confronts rituals and conventions he does not know. On a continuous plane, the camera follows the performances of the actors, staged by Brandenburg, in a ephemeral village Potemkin made of white scenarios in the open air. In the movie “Shadowplay,” a woman and two men meet in a theater dressing room, wear costumes, put on their make-up, enter a character and engage in a duel.

“Die Straße” and “Shadowplay” are shown in a loop, on April 4, from 2pm until 6pm, inside the “Casa-animal” installation of the Musa paradisica, places at the gardens of Complexo dos Coruchéus.
