Zones of Resplendence


What would the world look like if you could choose your own weapon? Zones of Resplendence explores forms of manifestation for a potential feminized army. Carolina Mendonça and Lara Ferrari investigate whether you can fight a war with vulnerability, expanding the perspective on violence. By using the body in different ways, they prepare themselves for a possible confrontation. Will this sci-fi dance performance give rise to a new kind of army?

She holds a Master in Choreography and Performance from the University of Giessen in Germany and graduated in Performing Arts from ECA-USP.
