Music VIdeo-Performance "moça, veja bem"

Music Video-Performance is a research created by Lina Tag and Luciana Elias, concerning the performative hybridism between scenic interpretation, inspirations in Japanese Butoh dance and Lina Tag's original songs. The movement research, under Luciana's direction, is part of an extensive experimental study and it is a result of the creative encounter between the two artists. The performance is recorded as a living experience and goes through a long and careful process of choreographic editing, attempting to fluidly cross acting, music and movement experimentation in order to create a sensorial experience for the spectator.

Dance show KOAN


Synopsis: In Zen Buddhism KOAN means small texts, stories, dialogues or parables that lead man to interpret life in a more subtle way, awakening his attention to another level of perception towards the passages of life. The choreographies will - symbolically -demonstrate an understanding of an individual who lives different experiences and is always changing. “When we think about the man who lives in the city, we believe that they also have the opportunity to be transformed, through self-observation, silence, reflection and interaction with others ”, says Sergio Ignacio, co-director of the show.
