Cry Baby Cry - A Performative Triptych
Cry Baby Cry was conceived in three parts which are articulated on multiple levels. Using the notion of triptych from visual arts, we propose in this case a resignification of the term: instead of three interconnected images we produced in “Cry” three performative materials which function as intermingled layers. The central focus here is associated with the idea of infantilism: at what level it is possible to associate many problems which permeate the brazilian society – corruption, the lack of a real sense of community, etc - with a broadened notion of infantilism? This question can be seen as one of the impulses that generated the materials performed in this production.
Three Parts: “Urban Bubble” – “Citytours” – “Only After the Carnival”
“Cry Baby Cry” represents a further development in our performative investigations in which research and artistic experimentation are deeply intertwined.
