Clara Amaral: In our eyes, a cascade

Sat 25 Jan, W139
21:00 - 21:35
Full program & tickets W139

"The water races down, through the slopes, through the rocks, through the moss. It keeps on falling, through the rocky top. As it falls, every time, at all times, a shift in perspective."

In this lecture performance, Clara Amaral explores the fall of a smartphone and the shifts in perspective that come with it. Just like a cascade that keeps on falling again and again - downward and onward - Amaral stares into the same surface in order to produce porosity, depth and poetics. Clara Amaral graduated from SNDO (Amsterdam) in 2013 and is currently doing her MA at the Dutch Art Institute. She is active as a choreographer and writer and has collaborated as a performer with Ivana Muller, Oneka von Schrader and Becket Mingwen.
