Purple is pleased to present “Set to Go,” a screening program that brings together an international group of artists whose works consider the relation between music and dance and their political possibilities in shaping and indicating personal, collective, and national identities. Taking its title from Bárbara Wagner & Benjamin de Burca’s work Faz que vai (Set to go) (2015), this program looks at movements in flux and in the process of becoming. Their work refers to a Frevo dance step that simulates a moment of instability, which, taken as a statement, offers a meditation on the power of movement, of rhythm, to address gender, socioeconomic, and environmental issues as well as the maintenance and transformation of cultural heritage and identity. To go is to traverse new regions through movement and music, instigate environments, engage with new ecologies, and bring bodies together. Videos will be screened by Lotte Andersen, Tibor de Laminne de Bex, Adham Faramawy, Santiago Gómez, Luiz Roque, Bárbara Wagner & Benjamin de Burca.
