STAGE PROOF 14/15
premiere June 2015, Cultura Inglesa Festival - São Paulo - Brazil
Inspired by the series of works "Stage Proof" (1972) by the British artist Richard Hamilton, and in the song "Sympathy for the Devil" by the Rolling Stones, the show explores concepts of repetition and relocation of materials already known to create something new, through the encounter between British art and music.
Hamilton's series of prints, "Stage Proof 1-13 and 16-19," shows the color-building process from a 1967 photograph of Rolling Stones leader Mick Jagger and the Robert Fraser. Convicted of drug possession, were found handcuffed in a police van on their way to court. In the show, body movement represents a collage associated with repetition strategies that transcend shape and lead the performer to a physical and mental exhaustion, a pull of layers that represents the inverse of the "Stage Proof" series, in which Hamilton adds a Layer of color to each engraving.
In the series are missing the pictures 14 and 15, respectively in red and white colors.
Contemplated by the 19th Cultura Inglesa Festival, category Dance.
