Coaching project | PLANO B | Thiago Granato

How to give different visibilities to well known social codes of our environment?

In a 3 days coaching project, the Brazilian choreographer based in Berlin, Thiago Granato, invites a group of artists to appropriate his creation methodology for the solo PLANO B.

Through decoupage and manipulation of movement, choreographic sequences are elaborated as strategies to activate a powerful critical communication between the performer and the audience.

Inspired by the work of the English artist Banksy, PLANO B creates a choreography that navigates through metaphors of our environment and relocates different contexts to suggest other visibilities with critical and ambivalent potential. Number of participants: max. 20 people

Duration: 11th – 13th of October, 19:00-22:00
