Performance - Installation

3 December | 5:30pm


The performance "She's Lost Control" is centred on a video installation by Alexandre Lyra Leite, inspired by the iconic Joy Division song. In dialogue with the video installation, actress/singer Joana Manuel and musician João Cardoso explore post-punk sound territories and dancer Carolina Inácio introduces other distortions with a solo specially designed for the Manchester band's music.
The enigmatic power of image, word and sound, in a "mise-en-scène" about loss of control, in multiple perspectives.
