tonus braga Tonus (2012) by Rodrigo Braga, video, 10 min, Brazil

“In Tonus, the artist’s body is present, engaging nature directly in a kind of tug-of-war that is sometimes proactive, sometimes repulsive. These choreographies exhibit states of tension, latent energies, forces in suspension, contraction and rest as reflection, and imminent action. The videos were filmed on the Northeast coast of Brazil, in Central Amazon (Rio Negro) and Rio de Janeiro (Tijuca Forest), and was first presented at the 30th International Biennial of Sao Paulo (2012),”

The screening will be followed by a Q&A with Rodrigo Brago
