with Ana Clara Montenegro and Alice Nogueira
Two humans, one machine and multiple viewers: Somewhere on the border between the virtual and analog worlds, the performers behave sometimes as humans and sometimes as avatars in a game of gaining and losing power and control. By relating to each other as well as to the invisible machine, they propose a situation for questioning humanity’s ways of life and the choices that have led us to our current crises and failures. Because: failure is the consequence of a pre-existing right or wrong.
