The Brazilian flutist, artist, and scholar Cassia Carrascoza presents an international program with telematic works unfolding a diversity of ways to express artistic creativity through telematics. In addition to Cassia’s most recent work Mãos Dadas [Holding Hands], an audiovisual composition that she produced in São Paulo in collaboration with Brazilian artists, the program features works by international artists from China, Europe, Mexico and the US. All works have been composed and performed by women.
The combination of music, electronic sound, visuals, and performance puts the audience into a state of telematic immersion in a time when social distance becomes a strategy for protecting ourselves from invisible living organisms. Holding \/ Hands dives the audience into a flux of events – sounds, visuals, performance, and spaces – in which bodies and machines act as partners. It proposes a telematic dialog that opens a space for experiencing a simultaneity of affects. Telematic immersion allows us to access multiple layers of being and shift between them.
