A split evening with Sônia Lopes Soares - Viga 212 (NYC/SP) &  Karen Bößer / Beatrix Szörényi (DE/HU)

Karen Bößer / Beatrix Szörényi (DE/HU)


Two artists – two manifestos. The wordless dialogue of the two artists creates one voice in a spatial manifesto. Pieces of Manifesto is a collaborative performance of a choreographer and a visual artist, in which Karen Bößer approaches objects through the grammar of movement with her choreographic gaze, while Beatrix Szörényi arrives to performativity through the figurativity of visual arts.

Pieces of Manifesto creates such a performative space-installation in front of it’s audience, in which per­formance, objects and installation react to each other and they transgress the frame of each other.

Sônia Lopes Soares is a Brazilian dance artist, based in New York City. Cultivating a language through multidisciplinary collaboration, Soares constructs scenes using nonlinear, poetic narratives, mirroring the random and chaotic nature of the universe. This investigation encompasses vulnerability in the bodies, the line between fiction and reality, the ridiculous and tragic, and how they all interconnect. Sônia has performed her work in Brazil, Argentina, Peru, United States, France at Pompidou, and at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.


Sônia Lopes Soares - Viga212  is a sponsored project of Fractured Atlas.
