CO:LATERAL
(Né Barros and João Martinho Moura, with Sónia Cunha. 2016-2018)
20 min

CO:LATERAL was developed from the Nuve artwork, a project for performance and digital art. Initially presented in 2010, this solo interpreted by Né Barros, was the motif for several national and international publications. In Co:Lateral the body projected and extended itself in a relationship of intimacy with interactive virtual reality. The performative discourse resulting from this connection calls for an extraordinary moment, a poetic moment made of a mixture of realities, made of body, double and images. Co:Lateral evokes moments of the death of the swan immersed in an immaterial space of light and projection: a phantom of the archive of dance now returns to test itself in a reality of illusory imprisonment.
Direction and choreography: Né Barros; Digital creation: João Martinho Moura; Performer: Sónia Cunha; Music: João Martinho Moura; Costume Design: Né Barros; Production: Lucinda Gomes (Balleteatro); Research supervision: Paulo Ferreira-Lopes (School of Arts, UCP/CITAR) and Né Barros (Balleteatro).
NaN:Collider + Miguel Pedro
(António Rafael, João Martinho Moura and Miguel Pedro. 2016-2018)
15 min

NaN:Collider is an audiovisual performance, started in 2016 by João Martinho Moura and António Rafael, devoted to the science, arts and space exploration. NaN is a numeric data type value representing an undefined or unpresentable value, something impossible to calculate. Collider refers to an opposite concept to that, something very concrete, used as a research tool in particle physics by accelerating particles to very high kinetic energy. On this project they invited Miguel Pedro, to work with them with sounds which result from a research process in experimental electronic music developed at the International Iberian Nanotechnology Institute. The artists take the public for a travel into deep space, starting on earth, flying to the moon, passing through a spiral galaxy in formation, facing a black hole and finishing at the nanoscale.
Music: António Rafael, Miguel Pedro, João Martinho Moura; Visuals: João Martinho Moura.
ShellShock
(Doaa Darwish. 2018)
15 min

ShellShock is an experimental multimedia performance that explores trauma and PTSD through human movement, by using motion capture technology to generate audio-visual content in real-time. The project aims to explore different approaches to combine digital media with theatre and Performing Arts. ShellShock is being developed in Rhine-Waal University media-labs in Kamp-Lintfort (Germany), under the supervision of Prof. Ido Iurgel.
Visuals and Music: Doaa Darwish; Performer: Carlos Silva (Balleteatro); Supervision: Ido Iurgel.
