“The Vortex”

The Immersive Installation will be available for free on an online platform.

The Vortex is a form that is unique in water or air, starting point for the show that became an immersive installation, under the conception of Vicente Martos.

With art direction by Vinicius Dantas, “The Vortex”Was walking to debut in physical space, but due to the pandemic of the new coronavirus, needed to be adapted for an online version, with the challenge of making the viewer feel intrinsically, part of that performance, this time as a virtual visitor. A video art entitled Vortex-Cortex will also be launched, directed by Ego Sum Frank and photography by Luciana Ramin.

The show will take place in different environments of the artist's home, weekly viewers will be able to access a new room, in each space an exclusive performance will be presented, that aestheticizes the body and its relationship with childhood memories.

For a more refined experience, the public will also be able to check the performance using virtual reality glasses, that will allow a more intimate and dynamic access, from angles shot with 360º cameras.
