Performance “Filosofia do ralo”


Understood as a dance performance, it is a bodily intervention based on Oscar Wilde’s novel “The Picture of Dorian Gray”. Drain-man is the performative figuration of one of the characters in the novel: Basil Howard, the painter obsessed with Dorian, who in this intervention walks/dances in different spaces. Carrying a scenic object created for the performance, a sort of parangolé of drains on his back, the artist moves with this oppressive weight that lends him a corporeity of his own.
