Dirk Jan Jager and Paul Glazier - Leviatã

Watch video >

Created by Dirk Jan Jager, who participated in the 2010 edition of VERBO, São Paulo, in partnership with Paul Glazier, Leviatã [Leviathan] is an action composed of apparently simple gestures: tied to a rope, Jager repeats movements of ascent and descent ad infinitum, while Glazier transforms the performer’s heartbeat and the sound of a struck singing bowl in real time. Jager and Glazier’s Leviatã aims to involve the public, creating a ritualistic atmosphere that transfigures the performer into a mythological beast.
