Directed, choreographed and edited by Thales Ferreira, and filmed by Maria Duarte and Yann Waise, "Collapse" uses contemporary movement to illustrate the space between sleep and wakefulness. Ferreira and Waise are joined on screen by Alice Castanho, Bruno Bernardini, Isadora Lobo, Margarita Torres and Maria Duarte in an exploration of the ordered chaos of bodies coexisting in space.
During this pandemic, we dancers have not been living in our normal bodies. Even though we may not see a physical change, on the inside, our bodies have altered. Use me as an example: Before COVID-19, I was a 28-year-old healthy, active human being. But after my recovery, a 15-minute abdominal workout practically destroyed my hips, kidneys and my entire dance career.
