The cenography Tempo de Verão for Marcia Milhazes Cia de Dança has developed itself into a space concept based on a mobile format, entering, from 2008, museums, institutions and art galleries.
The elements and motives are developed out of my drawings, with references to carnival ornaments. The projects have been executed by artisans of Samba Schools in Rio. Overlooked by Sergio Farias and Glauce Milhazes, with Imperatriz Leopondinense’s artisans (Gamboa, Gamboa I and II); and Gabriel Haddad and Leonardo Bora (Gamboa III) with Grande Rio artisans.
Curiously, Marcia Milhazes’ choreographies enter the visual arts ambiance and develop a dialogue with Gamboa. A happening, the creation of a cycle, an infinite cycle fullfilled with harmony.
Different versions were conceived accordingly to each venue’s specificities:
Gamboa – presented in two diferente versions: at Prospect 1 – US Biennal, New Orleans (2008); and in Fondation Beyeler, Basel (2010).
Gamboa I – developed in a unique version, to the exhibition Meu Bem, at Paço Imperial, Rio de Janeiro (2013)
Gamboa II – there were three different versions, distinctly between them specially in relation to the height, shown in Jewish Museum, NY (2016); White Cube Gallery, London (2018); e Parque Lage, Rio de Janeiro (2019).
Gamboa III – developed for the retrospective exhibition Beatriz Milhazes: Avenida Paulista, at MASP and Itaú Cultural. (2020)
