Dance and performance art show. “Architectures and archetypes” – a research about the sensibility of ideals, models and structures in a projection of self. Structures and textures as a power for creation.Original multidisciplinary performance “Architectures and Archetypes” isan art work created and premiered by Shamel Pitts, Mirelle Martins and Lucca del Carlo.
BLACK VELVET is a celebration of the many textures, beauty, delicacy, and power within us. It is an art piece that aims to share and reflect on the colorfulness of blackness – especially in regards to black women – in a relationship of love, compassion and camaraderie. The dealing within structures of systems is to discover what is inside of us, between us and around us. To hopefully bridge the distances so that we can see and meet each other. Some systems must be broken, reimagined, in order to reconstruct.
