BoCA - Biennial of Contemporary Arts, in partnership with Lisboa Dance Festival, on the 9th and 10th of march, occupies one of the spaces of Hub Criativo do Beato with works of art from artists that develop their work through music, dance and performance. With John Romão as Art Director.
In "Body Double 35", Dellsperger was inspired by the second scene of the movie 'Xanadu' (1980) of Robert Greenwald, that now is interpreted by the dancer/performer Fraçois Chaignaud. At a street of Los Angeles, nine muses from the past gain life: through these real figures painted in an animated 'fresco', they change dimensions to become real. Forgotten nowadays, 'Xanadu' represents its' old aesthetics with the ideas of the american movies cult that the artist Brice Dellsperger reinterprets through the perfomer François Chaignaud.
