D3US X M4CHIN4

choreographers

Fernando Belfiore

The Gladiator, Martians (Go home), Cyborgs and titans. In Fernando Belfiore’s meta-universe the past and the future form the now. He molds a new epic poem of gods and men, of machines and gadgets and of sound and light. Starting from a seemingly hopeless situation, which refers to the Greek tragedies, Belfiore sets his deus ex machina in motion.

From the original thought of Science Fiction - researching the possible consequences of science and innovation framed in a fictional story - Belfiore investigates the extremes of human condition. He connects the history of technological innovation, drama and their contemporary interpretations with his endless imaginative power. This meta-universe let you experience your daily reality on a whole different level. Not three but at least six dimensions will be laid bare.

D3US/XM4CHIN4 is a contemporary ritual about how we could deal with technology. An unsuspected power; a machine that once set in motion will expand your imagination.

Fernando Belfiore (1983, Brazil) makes performances on the intersection of dance, theatre and visual art. He is influenced by pop and night culture and mixes this contemporary reality with his surrealist dreamworlds. With his solo AL13FB<3 he toured around Europe, Asia and North- and South-America, and was selected for the Aerowaves TopTwenty’16. In July he represented the discipline dance for The Netherlands during the Olympic Cultural Program in Rio de Janeiro.
