the hand of Luis Augusto Collazzi

Overture (video)

In 2015, Ueinzz Theatre group participated in Arika Festival in Glasgow. We were invited to perform a play called “Cais de Ovelhas” (noreadymademen). Unfortunately, Luis Augusto Collazzi, one of the actors, wouldn’t be able to go. The day before we travelled I recorded his voice as he read an english translation of the introductory text for the play, which had been written by many hands, and describes some of the characters and scenes of this precarious assemblage that was our play. The background footage was made on the plane, with my cell phone. The video was exhibited for the first time as an overture to our performance a few days later.
