DEMISE - Kürzstück
"DEMISE - Kürzstück" was created for the "Demise" project proposed for and co-produced by the Festspielhaus HELLERAU. The quintet came as a conclusive stage piece to the creative process of the video works that are part of "A DEMISE Trilogy".
The 15-minute piece explored the choreographic ideas that Joao researched in his effort to represent through dance and performance the deterioration of clear communication observed in the phenomenon of post-truth.
Continuing the use of Brazilian funk music as a soundscape for this choreographic idea, Joao collaborated with Brazilian poet and singer Bixarte and beat producer Rafael Fantini to create the sound composition for the piece, which appears here mixed with sections of Claudio Monteverdi's "Vespro della beata vergine".
