New Creation

New Creation & Drift (I) - Spring Forward 2019

What if we could browse back and forward in the movement of time? New Creation invites you to a playful dialogue between two performers solidly equipped with wit, humour and projection screens. Using previous recordings, Filipe Pereira and Teresa Silva create a seemingly infinite mise en abyme, confusing images and reality. Filming is an attempt to survive, but it is also showing a form of death. For that, we need to constantly reformulate, because we need to go on. Don’t we?

Drift (I,II)

New Creation & Drift (I) - Spring Forward 2019

Stage performance, live concert or sculpture? Drift (I,II) is an exploration of slowness that defies genres. Two performers wearing hoodies question our gaze; like two islands, they navigate from codependency to estrangement. Venturing into exhaustion, their bodies are forced to manoeuvre with precision through an immensity of details, an infrastructure of otherwise unnoticed actions.
