Tana Guimaraes, Brazil
[performance + video projection]
“FIO: Pedra que corre no RIO", takes place in two transversal actions: a performance on stones, tracing a route in the city of Torres Vedras (PT) and a video performance on the current stream Tamandua (Minas Gerais / BR) . On the rocks or the river, one sees the smooth, sharp and tight. Stone, water and affect the body in rhythm and flow, time-space and urban forest. The Tamandua River is located in an area of environmental protection of rainforest and cerrado, (classified as a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve), the Ecological Station of closures. Threatened by mining activity and the housing boom of the city of Nova Lima, Rio is still surrounded by species of flora and fauna that depend on its waters to thrive and reproduce. Throughout its length there are already some points of silting and collapse, scars from a poorly planned occupation.
