Private Project


Leveza (Lightness), directed by Nicole Tsangaris, is the outcome in video of the choreography of Ana Sofia Ribeiro and Filipa Santos. The video explores a sequence of states that characterize the sensation of adaptability: even when the result of the adaptation is a manifestation of lightness, the body that shapes itself to space passes through a first moment of resistance and strangeness, where through small discoveries it finds Its place in the architectural space.
