Mirella Brandi x Muepetmo: Rente (Friday 22nd July – 18:00 @ ETG34, Ellen Terry Building, Coventry)

Live audiovisual performance that expands on the limits of theatrical projection. Projected images gradually detach from the screen and occupy the space. Shapes made of light change spatial perspectives and modify the screen’s flat character, producing volume and depth. Audience, artists and space are integrated in an immersive narrative sustained by cinema’s basic elements: light and sound.
