An embrace between predator and prey, between life and death, between the worker and the fruit of his labour.

    16 March 2019
    Museu Dom Diogo de Sousa, Braga

    VOLMIR CORDEIRO

    In “Rua”, Volmir manifests in the different bodies and faces the street might contain. The space which is drifted and crossed by the dancer’s redesigning by movement converts in an open abstraction, as the performer condenses in his body the diverse characters of the urban fauna, the ones most marginalized. A choreographic answer to the reading of the war poems of Bertolt Brecht, “Rua” instills a dance of thought and body, densifying the space, inhabiting a thousand ghosts.

    JONATHAN ULIEL SALDANHA

    "Scotoma Cintilante" is a performance-concert for a mixed choir of blind people with three dimensional graphical sheet music. The surface of a sculpture-machine is the inanimate matter that operates the mutation over the voice in time.

    MARLENE MONTEIRO FREITAS

    In “Cattivo”, the music stands are explored up to the limit of their expressive properties, their capacity to flesh out other emotional states and to make decisions, manipulating themselves and other objects, forming as a team in a symphonic community, with different instruments, rhythms, melodic lines... Akin to a stage, a garden or dollhouse, the installation will remain between vegetable, animal and the fantasy world.

    “Silent Disco” is an immersive show that happens in night- clubs, exploring the potential of the technology from ‘silent disco’ parties. This creation aims to speculate on the nature of clubbing as an act of resistance, capable of reconfiguring forms of reflection, affection and corporality. Spectacular identities, multiple sexualities, hedonistic consuming, raw physicality - do each of these constitute as a political practice of resistance?

    WOLFGANG TILLMANS
    In Tillmans’ universe there is music, dance, dilated pupils, liberated sex, political affirmation and also abstract images. In the context of BoCA, he displays the most obscure side of his art: Tillmans also produces electronic music. It’s this hidden profile of the artist that he shares with us in Lisbon in a unique moment, starting the night with pre-recorded music as well as live set, with CDJ’s and microphone.
