ebbs eludes encapsulates echoes

A durational performance installation by Fernanda Branco.

The installation consists of six short films presented in conversation with contextualising written materials from Brazilian collaborators and a live durational performance. Layering images within liveness, and exploring liveness within image, the work explores states of presence-absence, vulnerability-stability, discontinuance-endurance with a focus on the cyclical aspects of temporality, place and motion.

The film-performances were developed during an artistic residency in Atafona, a beach in the northern region of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. For over sixty years Atafona has been subject to devastating erosion, a process which started with irresponsible extractive policies and has been accelerated in recent years due to the planetary ecological crises.

ebbs eludes encapsulates echoes is part of Fernanda Branco’s PhD Artistic Research embodiment environment – towards poetic narratives . The project explores the concept of agency in the context of encounters between body and environment. The research inhabits spaces between genres, styles, media and disciplines, while braiding together facts, fiction, documentary and poetry.

The artistic works are developed as a series, exploring performance in dialogue with films, lectures and/or installations. The research is based on processual, regenerative modes of work, drawing from uncanny, poetic and embodied perspectives.

A single action is practiced cyclically throughout the research: to walk backwards.

Fernanda Branco is a Brazilian performer, gardener and poet based in Norway, currently a PhD. fellow at the Theatre department.
