Residency by TRÉMULA Project | February 11th to 21st

TRÉMULA é um projeto sobre os diferentes aspectos do primeiro construtor e destruidor da vida natural, os vulcões, e envolve diferentes capítulos em progresso, incluindo desempenho, vídeo e instalação. Ao construir as condições específicas, o objectivo é trazer o utilizador/visitante para uma consciência distinta sobre questões ambientais, colocando ênfase nas capacidades físicas do corpo humano como base para uma reflexão profunda e transformadora.

TRÉMULA começa como um vídeo performativo filmado no vulcão da Ilha de São Miguel, Açores. Uma natureza luxuriante e rica que toma a maior parte da ilha, com árvores, plantas e vários animais, contrasta com a área de rochas vulcânicas do lado do mar, onde nenhuma forma de vida prolifera. A performance situa-se deste lado, relacionada com a primeira fase da formação da vida na terra, como forças mágicas, mas também sentindo a dificuldade de viver num contexto em que a natureza não é um lugar para uma sobrevivência amável, como está a acontecer com as alterações climáticas causadas pelo homem comportamento. A performance, então, entre o esforço real e a improvisação criativa, procurou traduzir esta situação ambígua.

VAULT OR THE FORGES OF VULCANO
O capítulo a investigar na residência CULTIVAMOS CULTURA estará relacionado com momentos posteriores a erupção vulcânica: a destruição que transforma a atmosfera (antes de fertilizar a terra para o novo).

Esta investigação e criação será baseada no desempenho de Natalia Lis, interpretando na dança os efeitos e as relações naturais de uma erupção imaginária, o vídeo de Pavel Tavares, criando a atmosfera necessária para gerar o sensação do momento expressa no capítulo, para além de textos de diferentes autores (e dos próprios artistas) que envolvem a situação com poesia, ares mitológicos ou metafísicos.
Que movimentos corporais traduzem este momento preciso? Que imagem, enquadramento, iluminação e os movimentos da câmara fornecem o tom necessário? Que textos e sons realmente criam as imagens que expressam a intenção e mantêm o mistério e a abertura para interpretações? Eles trabalharão tentando responder a estas questões para criar um peça audiovisual.

TRÉMULA is a project about the different aspects of the first builder and destroyer of natural life, the volcanoes, and involves different chapters in progress, including performance, video and installation. While constructing the specific conditions, the aim is to bring the user/viewers into a distinctive awareness on environmental issues, putting emphasis on the physical capacities of the human body as a base for deep and transformative reflection.

TRÉMULA begins as a performative video filmed in the volcano of São Miguel Island, Azores. A lush and rich nature that takes the major part of the island, with trees, plants and various animals is in contrast with the area of volcanic rocks on the side of the sea, where no form of life proliferates. The performance is located on this side, relating to the first phase of the formation of life on earth, as magmatic forces, but also feeling the difficulty of living in a context where nature is not a place for a kind survival, as it is happening with the climatic changes caused by human behavior. The performance, then, between real effort and creative improvisation, sought to translate this ambiguous situation.

VAULT OR THE FORGES OF VULCANO
The chapter to investigate in the CULTIVAMOS CULTURA residence will be related to the later moments of volcanic eruption: the destruction that transforms the atmosphere (prior to fertilizing the earth for the new).
This investigation and creation will be based on the performance of Natalia Lis, interpreting in dance the effects and natural relationships of an imagined eruption, the video by Pavel Tavares, creating the atmosphere necessary to generate the sensation of the moment expressed in the chapter, in addition to texts by different authors (and of the artists themselves) who involves the situation with poetic,
mythological or metaphysical airs. What body movements translate this precise moment? What image, framing, lighting and camera movements provide the necessary tone? What texts and sounds really create the imagery that expresses the intention and maintains mystery and open interpretations? They will work trying to answer these questions to create an audiovisual piece for installation.
