Né Barros e João Martinho Moura

CO:LATERAL (2016) Né Barros and João Martinho Moura

Dance and Media Art

CO: LATERAL was developed from the Nuve performative project that explored the relationship between dance and the digital arts. Initially presented in 2010, this solo interpreted by Né Barros, gave rise to several national and international publications. Here, the body is projected and extended itself in a relationship of intimacy with interactive virtual reality. The performative discourse resulting from this connection calls for an extraordinary and poetic moment made of space and body, made of a mixture of realities, made up of double figures and images.
