Meet the artists after the performance on 7/05

The sun and its images are often used and associated with narratives of progress and productivity. They create what is defined as a solar capitalism, an attempt to take hold of the solar myth: the light, the movement of the earth, water tides and all animal coitus become a capitalist machine, and even cosmologies are at the risk of being colonized. A group of performers from different disciplines (dance, performance, sound,…) embarks on a journey that wishes to reclaim a non-productive – and almost destructive – presence of the sun. They freely merge archaic, pre-capitalist and futuristic imaginary. Is it possible to narrate a myth exceeding the simple use of language, articulated by magnificent costumes, movements, animals and tropical rhythm? For their last two (and longer) performances they invite others to create an unexpected moment beyond the limits of a single form. Exuberant.

Caetano (Salvador, Brazil 1980) is an artist who would like to challenge zombie-centric notions of creativity. He designs spaces and situations in order to help the alienated (human) body in the center of the cybersphere.

Cecilia Lisa Eliceche (Wallmapu/Argentina 1986) is a dancer, choreographer and dance advocate, traversed by more than 500 years of colonialism. She is fascinated by the endless potential of the body and movement and conceives dance as a site to experiment and practice otherwise.

Leandro Nerefuh (Bertioga, Brazil, 1975) is an artist whose work deals with formal translations of historical narratives, with a special interest in Latin America. He is the founder of PPUB, a political party active in Brazil, Paraguay, and Uruguay, and supports Sonia Guajajara for the next president of Brazil.

Ribidjunga Cardoso is a member of the Clovis culture.
