Triptych: Bones, Red Lipstick and Hamlet

A woman, a black tissue, a chair...

She leans left 

Oppositions and exhibitions, feet, hands on the ground

Bones, bones, bones, 3x bones

Barefeet, sun on face, feet

Even when the sun dies she'll hear its bones...

Performance-Installation by Thaís Medeiros that poeticly addresses existential themes of death / life, being or not being in contemporary. Na artistic job Inspired by the characters Hamlet/Ophelia from the work of William Shakespeare and by poems and personal experiences that refer to the same theme. It is a scenic experiment that seeks a dialogue, an intertwining between theatrical poetics and the visual arts.

This performance was presented in 2019 at TRANSIT IX (main festival of The Magdalena Project network) at the head office of Odin Teatret in Denmark and during Ocupação Magdalena organized by Coletivo Galeria Gruta in partnership with the Goethe Institute at Vila Itororó, in São Paulo.
