é um prazer conhecer-te
Two mermaids meet again on the lush shore of their daily lives (ehe) and decide to keep trying to play the sharing game. From here comes reciprocity, a video/talk/dance/singing.
At no point are they overly concerned with the scientific rigor of their analysis, and instead they swim through the free space of their homes, wondering how a body moves without being tied to the idea of “dance”. As if to challenge the technique (splashing, diving, snaking, squinting, …) imposed on their dives, they look for just forms for the measure of the unpredictable, of fragility and uncertainty.
— Diogo Lança Branco (1993, Portugal). Artist that survives and works in Lisbon. Increasingly seeks collaborative projects.
— Helena Carneiro (1995, Portugal). Tries to find new senses in Lisbon. Likes to think about movement and likes dancing even more.
— Confined, with the desire to create something from affective sharing, they grabbed onto Ritmos&Tristezas and, from that flow, ~dylena was born.
Desespedro proposes a sound landscape of hulls, pots and soap bubbles through experimental music, post-apocalyptic hyperpop and electronic reggaeton. Between techno, ethereal r&b and pingo doce jingles, a set to dance the unpredictability of the famous gemini season – or, as another would say, freestyle.
