Here in this space where we find ourselves, the walls soften. They are wet and begin to sweat a liquid full of pheromones that signal calm and pleasure. We also start to perspire lightly, and our orifices are lubricated relaxed. I put my index finger in my mouth, and with the saliva I collect, I draw a crossroads on the floor. The wet trail begins to light up, as the interior of these paths darkens. We are in the middle of the crossroads, and the four directions around us spiral, soar, explode, replicate.
We followed all the paths at the same time
The word apocalypse comes from the Greek APO – to take away, and KALUMA – veil, literally meaning to UNVEIL. UN-SEE WATCH We think of APOCALYPSO as a possibility to remove the veils that cover invisible constructions of the colonial world as a way of destroying it. This destruction appears at a sensitive crossroads that activates the body as a cartographic place of crossing, where performativity, spirituality, fiction and spell intersect and blur their limits.
Apocalypso is a duo conceptualized and directed by Luara Raio, performed and co-created with Brazilian dancer and choreographer Acauã El Bandide Sereia. The scenography is by the performer and set designer Anat Bosak and lighting by the performer and illuminator, Luisa Labatte. The creative process began in December 2021 at the ICI-CCN – International Choreographic Center of Montpellier in the context of the Master exercise.
On March 13, after the show, there will be a conversation about the first edition of the festival Gaivotas <-> Belém.
