SLIITZ/Preto

Curator: Jean-François Chougnet | Session: Open Call – Screening of competition finalists

This project by the duo AKapella47 (SLIITZ/Preto) originated as a spoken word performance by Chullage aka “Preto”. That text grew wings when a choreography was made for it, the one shown in this video, as part of a Vhils show entitled “Periférico”.
We uphold the idea that there is a gap between that which modern man chases consciously – the fight for attaining a comfortable place in society – and the subconscious desire for harmony and for finding an answer to the meaning of life. The impossibility of reconciling this double dimension of existence creates a state of disorientation, permanent dissatisfaction and ego distortion. This disconnection, fragmentation and disintegration of the human psyche is the basis for the visual language that I used to create this video.
