A woman, a black fabric, a chair...
She leaned to the left
Oppositions and expositions, feet, hands on the flooR
Bones, bones, bones, 3x bones
Bare feet, face under the sun, feet
Even when the sun dies she shall hear her bones …
A performance installation from Thais Medeiros that poetically deals with existential topics such as life/death and the to be or not to be in the current days. A piece inspired by Shakespeare’s characters Hamlet/Ophelia and by poems and personal experiences that refer to the same theme. It is a performing experiment that aims at a dialog, an entwinement between the theatrical poetry and the visual arts.
