Camaleões




Camaleões - by Luciana Lara, AntiStatus Quo Cia. de Dança - Brasília / DF

Alfandega Square


One of the most important dance companies in Brazil, AntiStatus Quo has been developing “site specific” creations that have been very successful and has circulated in the most important performing arts festivals in many countries. In Camaleões, they create an imagery provocation through these bodies mimicked in the city's chaotic urban scenario and have an impact on the public that moves wherever they are. Camaleões is an urban intervention made up of disappearances. Bodies covered by images and words taken from advertising jargon lose their contours in the visual pollution of the urban environment and merge with shop windows, store entrances, walls and billboards. Forming a second skin, the advertising materials pasted on different parts of the bodies denounce values, ideals of life, notions of the body produced, manipulated and distorted by predatory capitalism that are uncritically incorporated by society.
