Urban Intervention: Punto Social Temporal (Temporary Social Point)
As part of the Encounter of the Hemispheric Institute of Performance and Politics of NYU.
Sao Paulo, Brazil, Dec 2012 - Feb 2013 / collaboration with Hannah Gardiner.
Temporary Social Point was a project made in collaboration with british artist Hannah Gardiner. Taking part in the 8th Encounter of the Hemispheric Institute of Politics and Performance from New York University we created a mobile favela hut out of found materials in which we toured around Sao Paulo central squares inviting people to engage with us in many different ways. This experience changed my perception of performing and its relation to the audience in public spaces and marked a whole line of work I have developed since. Using street performance/ intervention we created a social experiment addressing different themes: love, altruism, community living/support and informality as a real alternative of autonomous social organization for this new era of change of paradigm, crisis and peak oil. We made an interactive space to explore, listen and learn.
