Umbilicus Performance


Performance presented in Lagos (Portugal) in LAC – Laboratório de Actividades Criativas, Espaço Jovem and Mercado da Avenida.

The “Umbilicus Performance” crosses the sound and body expression with the Visual Arts. As the name suggests, explores the potential of my hole, which starring an action that interferes with the noise generated by an electronic equipment. This work also break the boundaries between the intimate space and public space and it is assumed the live body as a gift in spaces marked by the trade and services where the performance is normally presented. This performance is integrated in the search i’ve been developing around the potential of the body as a generator of sounds and images that change due to specific actions and anatomic movements. I chose the belly button, the hole that get us inside of the body, which sometimes bland sometimes excited, wander slowly attracted by a treble sound. This sound is shaped by my energy and build a different atmosphere.
