Nothing here has been done for us. The human being lives an illusion of protagonism in relation to existence, a narcissistic process of thinking that everything is done for the human being. People are at home, struggling in a dispute for protagonism. Wanting to negotiate with a force still unknown to the human being, which is nature, to exist and to deal with the fall of everything that was believed to be right. This “not being”, this negotiation, this dispute for is represented in a film, with 18 dancers who created their interpretations on the theme, printing their style and voice over a choreographic base created by @marcel.anselme and filming themselves in their own homes, during the quarantine, with the that was available, alone or with the help of their partners.

Audience FEEDBACK: ICARO, 11min, Brazil, Experimental

ICARO, 11min, Brazil, Experimental
Directed by Carla Jay Shah Laroche

Based on the Greek tragedy, Icaro is a Brazilian modern adaptation of the iconic struggle; a man who seeks liberation from an environment in which he feels caged and powerless. Where myths tell us that our fate is determined by a greater force than our own, Icaro is a poetic film which illustrates how our fate is also determined by choice. Icaro must reach his own decisions on how his profession as an elevator operator will ultimately affect him, a profession which is still widely in use in Brazil. The film touches multiple aspects of Brazil’s complex society.
