A situation in Brasil!

Helen : 21/02/2015 3:57 pm : COM, helen

Remember those protests we heard about, before and during the 2014 world cup in Brasil? Do you know what they were all about, if anything was achieved, or if social unrest continues? I’ve been invited to create a “situation” in Rio de Janiero, and the topic will be social inequality, including exploring these demonstrations.

The situation is part of the programme of Multicidade, an international festival of women in the performing arts, taking place from 31 October to 7 November. I’ll travel to Rio a few days before the festival in order to prepare, then during the festival I’ll lead a workshop in which participants will learn about networked performance and create a cyberformance about social inequality in Brasil. Once I know more information including the exact date and time of the performance, I’ll post it here so that you can join online.

My research will begin well before I go to Rio; I’ll start to look into the background to the demonstrations (there are some images and a bit of commentary from 2013 here and here), and find groups or individuals in Rio who I can network with and who might be interested in being involved in the project. I’m also hoping to have a screening in Munich, and perhaps other places, where audiences can gather to contribute to the discussion.

We have a situation…

admin : 05/11/2012 6:37 pm : COM

We Have a Situation! – a series of live, trans-border, online-offline participatory performances addressing current cross-cultural European issues.

During the first quarter of 2013, networked performances will take place at local venues and simultaneously in the online platform UpStage, sharing stories across European national borders and posing questions that creatively frame a specific situation.

After each performance, audiences connecting online in real time will participate in discussions that imagine creative solutions to the situation. This process aims to bring people together in a creative event and foster an understanding of countries as communities of people, with many commonalities.
