Splendour and Dysmorphia

by Vera Mantero and Jonathan Uliel Saldanha, 2019

Hybrid recital for two landscape-bodies animated by breathing. An agglomerate which destroys and amplifies itself, disaster and anti-disaster in which acceleration, fungus and voice survive. Invisible splendours. Hyper-future and hyper-past. Between dysmorphia, the sun and the flesh.
