Open Call: 3rd Mostra.BRABA

Submit your project to Alkantara Festival 2024

ALKANARA - In a studio, two people are in the centre of the photograph, Gaya and Ary. They are wearing grey clothes. With his legs stretched out, wrapped around Gaya's neck, Ary extends his body and arms diagonally towards the ceiling. With her head down, Gaya holds Ary's legs with her forearms, allowing the performer to propel his body upwards. - ©
