Vizinhos Neighbors Vecinos

Without even stepping outside your apartment or house, there they are, your neighbors. They frame your daily life as well as your domestic life through direct or indirect contacts with you, giving your surroundings its characteristic atmosphere, colors, endurance. Any single conglomeration of people´s dwellings produces a neighborhood. Divided by walls, fences, yards, windows and doors, neighborhood is an almost universal phenomenon.

Neighbors, a collaboration project between the dance artists Gustavo Ciríaco (Brazil) and Andrea Sonnberger (Austria), is intended as an open research whose aim is to discover a neighborhood and try to produce links between an arts based practice and the immediate surroundings of a neighborhood. Considering neighborhood as a geographically localized community within a larger city, town or suburb with certain patterns and uses of space and time, our interest lays in creating links or making visible the actual and existing ones.

About Me

Rio de Janeiro, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
Rio de Janeiro. I am a performing artist and art maker coming from dance. I love to dialogue with the historical, material and affective context we are immersed in any given situation. As art form, my work goes from multimedia stage conceptual work to convivial and open-air pieces. It strikes me the awareness and fictions arising from the sublime of daily situations, its materiality, the reference points that we cling to and build up our relation to reality and how meaning grows from this. contacts: |
