Project Description


Today we live in a hyperconnected spiral of possibilities and stimuli.
Marina Nabais, proposed to the 12 participants to reflect on this body / mind on the verge of collapse.
Through a series of exercises and experiments, the thesis of a return to a more contemplative / negative mode of movement was also sought, in which delay and withdrawal allow one to resume caress, abandonment and resistance.
These two paths of existence – Active Life and Contemplative Life – lead us to two different types of fatigue with which we have to negotiate the advancement of our lives.
NO proposes the here and now, a permanent dance between the positive and the negative, inviting us to taste the true aroma of time.
