Thiago Antunes (BR) & Leonie Kuipers (NL): Taming The Eye
Leonie Kuipers (NL) and Thiago Antunes (BR) share the desire of questioning the set-up of a performance and how relations with the audience are constructed.
Revolving around choreography and instructions, they aim to investigate the inner logic of an event. During the two weeks of residency at BUDA, the two artists will connect their practices by creating scores and making videos.
