| SYNOPSIS

Saudade! It doesn’t matter how far we go; the more we grow, the more we strengthen the connection with our essences and our hearts. Luís Fernando, Jovani Furlan, Luanna Gondim and Maitê Nunes dance together as a shadow of one another, in an alien place that represents their introspectiveness. Pássaro Distante can be interpreted as how far we can go into our internal universe – as a distant bird.

When the pandemic hit, dancers Luís Fernando, Jovani Furlan, Luanna Gondim, and Maitê Nunes reunited in their hometown of Joinville, Brazil and dance together as a shadow of one another, in a familiar yet alien place that allows for contemplative self-examination. Directed by Gabriela Mo and with cinematography by Larissa Zaidan, Pássaro Distante features original choreography by Cassi Abranches, choreographer for São Paolo Companhia de Dança and Grupo Corpo, and original music from Andrei Martinez Kozyreff, Ju Strassacapa and Malu Magri, members of Latin Grammy-nominated group, Francisco, El Hombre.
