DUPLoS

DUPLOS surge da possibilidade de re-entender o sentido de espetáculo e valorizar a composição sonoro-coreográfica que acontece no instante através de corpos que se atiram sobre o risco, movidos pelo desejo de estar presentes na experiência adaptativa da criação conjunta. Os artistas convidados tratam aqui da poesia envolvida entre os corpos que se moldam e se delineiam sem a segurança e a garantia de que algo determinado aconteça, mas pela certeza de que ao menos o encontro se basta para provocar a emergência das diversas camadas de uma relação que produz imagens, sons, movimentos, procedimentos e intensidades em fusão.

Nesta série de encontros os artistas convidados realizam performances que propõe a intensificação da presença na relação entre música e dança postos a criar em conjunto os elementos de uma gramática provisória que se territorializa e desfaz entre-linguagens, desenvolvendo-se a partir dos estímulos e acordos estabelecidos durante cada instante. Prescindindo de ensaios prévios ou da construção/elaboração de uma obra em tempo diferido, cada performance se faz justamente ao lidar com o imprevisto, o acaso e o provisório enquanto recursos de uma criação artística conjugada entre o corpo e o som.

A série teve inicio em 2016 no SESC Pompeia e nesta ocasião contou com a participação dos artistas Beatriz Sano e Jorge Peña; Aline Bonamin e Thomas Rohrer; Patricia Bergantin e Paulo Hartmann; Eduardo Fukushima e Rogério Costa. Em 2017 tivemos no SESC Vila Mariana a presença dos artistas Felipe Merker e Erica Tessarolo; Nina Gioveli e Loop B; Andre Damião e Patricia Arabe; Cristian Duarte e Luiz Galvão. A terceira edição ocorreu no SESC Campinas com Talita Florêncio e Pedro Macedo; Juliana Moraes e Manu Falleiros; Key Sawao e Alexandre Zamith; Jussara Miller e Thiago Salas. O registro fotográfico do projeto fica por conta de Pel Mathias e os vídeos que estão sendo produzidos para compor um repositório de referências destas práticas são do designer e editor Iago Matti.
