En+Theos

Scenario made for Nicole Della Costa's video project called En+Theos. The video is based on the collection of the eponymous poems published by Nicole Della Costa in 2017.  The poems written in English and Portuguese, are read chronologically and are given a voice and a body. It immediately imposes a character and an unperfected fluidity of sounds. The viewer finds themselves in the confusion of an organized cacophony, an obliged bi-lingual experience.

After a month in dialogue, composition, colors and forms were defined for each group of poems becoming temporal sculptures that play with classical still life and domesticity. Using a set of physical vocabulary to create an unique visual reading of the poems, my work ends up functioning as a performative aspect in the video.
