Crossing Walls: Performance between residencies


On March 16, halfway through the artist Marcela Cavallini’s residency, Despina closed on recess due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Following up the initial proposal of conducting residencies within the residency, and in dialogue with six other artists – Edzita Sigo Viva, Clarice Rito, Tuk Melo, Ara Nogueira, Dulce Lysyj and Anna Cecilia Cabral – the exchanges continued remotely and the developments are a document of this difficult time in which we isolated ourselves in the face of an unprecedented crisis.

The results can be seen in Àquelas que Intentam Atravessar Paredes: Performance entre Residências, and also in O que é necessário à residência agora?, both works produced collaboratively by the artists.
