Transatlantica

The stage had the constant presence of an ice block, that worked like a dancing lens on the stage, multiplying the light with all its possible optical phenomena. The light was the element between the performer and the water. It crossed everything spreading colors, refraction, reflection and the dance between these aspects and the emotional state of the scene.

The space in which the performance was settled was the Ori, a space of the Orixás spirituality. The lighting had the role, then, to bring this spiritual place in which our consciousness and nature meet, in the places where black ancestrality is celebrated.

Aesthetics of colors

The technical research, here, was to figure out how to lit the black skin and white skin in the same scenes without devaluing each of the actors. In the end of the process, the lighting represented the passage of time through the different spaces of the narrative.

New Growth

The light, then, was monochromatic and cold when related to this future land and warm in the scenes that related to the ancestors that would support her through the new challenges against the old racism.

The design would bring a very geometric design that played with the color temperature of the dimming and the red reflection from the earth in the floor.
