a film by the Brazilian queer collective Danças em Transições

From an online artistic residency led by Pol Pi at the Cultural Center of São Paulo, we created Danças em Transições (Danses en Transitions), a queer collective and a hybrid creation platform between 10 Brazilian trans, bixa and non-binary artists. A platform of resistance and solidarity that has proven fundamental in our lives during the collective experience of pandemic distancing. What can this collectivity tell us about the transformation of beings and worlds? The dramaturgical web of TANGLY, our first film, was woven through the recording of virtual encounters and the individual production of audiovisual materials between February and August 2021. It is not a filmed dance performance or a documentary, but a film whose format was born out of our desires to share creative practices and modes of existence. In this process, we embarked on the challenge of questioning the audiovisual language through our deconstructive gazes, of finding our own path, ephemeral like our dances and our existences, of filming and being filmed. The sharing of practices and processes has thus been seen as work, for what interests and moves us is precisely this transitory space of reinvention which questions the very formats to which we are accustomed as validated "results" within the framework of contemporary dance and performance.
