BLIND is an urban performance presented as an open work that refers to different readings: the reduction of our existence to the productive function and consumption, overwork, imprisonment and petrification of life, automation of daily life, ethical degeneration that is spreading at the present stage of society.
The visual proposal is to criticize the grinding conditions so typical of all kinds of corporate work iconized in the social outfits that men and women wear in the great metropolises as an everyday armor. The work is developed from a theoretical and practical workshop, an opportunity in which the performative chorus is formed and the work comes to life. The debut of BLIND was on Paulista Avenue, followed by a performance in Rio de Janeiro in 2012.
The performance also represented Brazil at the World Stage Design, in Taipei, Taiwan, an event organized by OISTAT - International Organization of Stage Designers, Theater Architects and Technicians, that every 4 years celebrates the best in performance design around the globe, presenting a Panel with artistic productions developed worldwide.

Sasha Waltz, A Portrait
Sasha Waltz is one of Europe’s best-known and most exciting choreographers. Her choreographies are outstanding as she always surprises with new formations, deep subjects, and stunning aesthetic style. But she does not only work with dancers: the dialogue with all other art forms is her special interest.
Nacho Duato‘s ballet Jardi Tancat is based on the lyrics of old Catalan folk songs, set to music and sung by María del Mar Bonnet. Its theme is the joy and pain of working the land and it is danced by three couples who continue to sow, plant, reap and thresh in proud defiance of their barren surroundings.
