I found we need this creative collective force today as a public spirit. Adaptive, Imaginative, Collaborative. With this “fountain’ I want to liberate our patterns and ideas on social perspective side. We see too much ourselves as social human beings from a very anthropocentric perspective. By embodying the fountain, I want to explore and shift to other aspects of empowerment that as perhaps forgotten from modern life such as intuition, creative power, environmental relation, the relation to the other, essence, commonality. Intrigued by social sculpture I want to bring movement to the level of liberation.
A FONTE – BRASIL
The Garden of Earthly Delights, by Hieronymus Bosch, and the works of contemporary visual artist Aernout Mik, both Dutch, served as the inspiration to the choreographers Fernando Belfiore and Dani Lima that collaborated during the residence HOBRA. The performance comes from the allegory of the fountain to walk through the affections of current relations. They also had collaborated with other 21 artists from Rio that had participated thought out 5 days of experimentation.
