Set To Go

 My work was included in a screening event at Space52 in Athens curated by Samantha Ozer.

"Set To Go brings together an international group of artists whose works consider the multivalent potentialities between music and dance and the political possibilities for how these entangled forms of cultural production both shape and indicate personal, collective and even national possibilities. Taking its title from Barbara Wagner and Benjamin de Burca's work Faz que vai (Set to go, 2015), this program looks at movements in flux and in the process of becoming. Their work refers to a Frevo dance step that simulates a moment of instability, which taken as a statement, offers a meditation on the power of movement, of rythm, to address gender, socioeconomic, and environmental issues as well as the maintenance and transformation of cultural heritage and identity. To go is to traverse new regions through movement and music, instigate environments, engage with new ecologies, and bring bodies together."

Viewers watched my 360 video work, 'My fingers distended as honey dripped from your lips and we danced in a circular motion', on their phones, moving communally with sound playing from speakers in the space.

Artists include:

Lotte Anderson, Tibor de Laminne, Adham Faramawy, Santiago Gomezch, Luiz Roque and, Barbara Wagner and Benjamin de Burca
