Sobre o evento

ABANDONADA MENTE is an immersive show forsite specificwith a strong component of visual and auditory elements. The project was born out of a mutual interest in an artistic collaboration between performance artist Rui Paixão and choreographer Brandon Lagaert, fusing the world and inner logic of circus, dance and theatre. This hybrid of different art forms and interests is exactly what connects KAIHO and Holy Clowns, together with the search for a cinematographic aesthetic that in itself conveys the atmosphere, the need or lack of words, the body as the focal point of the performance, the narrative as a macro objective without the need for linearity and the desire to delve into the depths of human depravity. The performance follows the story of a man who works as a tour guide, fighting the decaying buildings that willingly surround him on a daily basis. Over time, the abandoned place confronts him with his inner demons that he tries to overcome by focusing on a simple job. As he explores deeper into the landscape, only his body has the possibility to communicate what human language cannot. . As he slowly loses touch with reality, we are faced with the possibility that this guided tour could be his last.

Embraced by the deep silence that once frightened me I dig under a twisted structure that looms over the barren landscape Nothing more than getting a little pleasure out of performing a simple task

In the end, I'm nothing but a pile of dust blown in the wind.
