Choreographer Adriana Barreto deploys the body as her medium for artistic adventure
This event has finished
A new exhibition 'Agora Sim – O Que Pode Um Corpo', takes over two floors of Oi Futuro Flamengo until September, opening with a performance from Adriana Barreto and her team of five dancers. The body's movements have always been at the heart of the choreographer and ballerina's work, but tonight they will literally be creating art with every foot-fall. The largely unplanned dance in and out of the audience will leave its mark for the duration of the two-month exhibition with a tape cross placed on the floor at the point of each landing limb, the idea being that visitors will be able to feel the lasting movement of what is usually an entirely ephemeral artform.
The exhibition itself consists of a large photographic installation 'O Côncavo da Mão' on level one of the modern cultural centre. At the entrance, three videos will be shown, including 'O Menor Espaço para o Corpo' which was shown during the 'High Tech/Low Tech' exhibition earlier in the year. As well as the performance, level two will receive a video projection across the walls showing Barreto's hands growing and shrinking in slow, precise movements.
The opening performance will take place on 23 July at 7pm
