In Portuguese, Zona de Derrama (“Overflow Zone”) refers to a territory with no clearly defined limits, inviting anything that seeps in, overflows or spreads beyond borders to manifest itself. From this hybrid place, multiple voices, organic sounds, music and dance emerge. For the occasion, artist Luisa Lemgruber has created layers of sound from elements that make up the environment: rocks, earth, water, etc. By making aquatic resources the heart of their dance creation, Catol Teixeira questions notions of regeneration, exhaustion and self-care. This timeless moment awakens our senses and celebrates water as a poetic material that moves and flows, as well as a political object.
“(…) Resonance is also a signifier for the transmission of feeling, thought, senses, and memory. Moving between and beyond genres, media, disciplines, politics, and affects, resonance is constant tessellation and oscillation. Yet resonance does not make for an easy and simplistic gathering of wholeness, for it is often a discrepant engagement; its movements through time and space are simultaneously integrative and disintegrative. Fissure, fracture, incongruity, the rickety “– the creaking of the word” (…).
Composed of multiversal resonating performances that constantly form and deform, the formless alters the content of design and the design of content. A fluctuating ensemble of operations, the formless performs borderless arrangements. These ensembles, for us, happen in and across the spatial-temporal continuums of anticolonial aesthetics that serve to bring things down [déclasser], for the anticolonial has always been lurking behind the categorical imperative of form itself, violent designs meant to be destroyed through aesthetic strategy, study, and battle.”
