Manu Falleiros & Improvised Collective | 2020
We are pieces and fragments, reminiscences and noise on a screen. Distopias precariously emulating ancestral connections in a world of communicative power. As in the game of surrealist artists, an improviser performs a solo improvisation, but only sends the last seconds to the next improviser. This next improviser, in turn, basing himself only on a final fragment, performs his improvisation and, in the same way, sends only a short final stretch to the next improviser. And so on. Once the sequence was finished, all the improvisations were put together in order, offering an unexpected result for the improvisers… and then edited in disorder…
