THE ETHER - Prelude No. 1 by Tetine & Yoko Afi - a film-performance conceived for the Pink Umbrellas Art Residency / Aug 2020



TETINE & YOKO AFI

THE ETHER – Prelude No.1 THE ETHER is a reflective sonic-aphasic (dis)rhythmic meditation in the form of a prelude (for cello, dance, waste, air, wind, body and breathing). The piece comprises of 7 distinct yet complementary slow movements that explore the atmospherics and metaphysics of untamed syntaxes of time, space, voice, rhythm and breathing. The prelude speaks of stillness, becomings, luminosities, value, respiration, and body fluids, as it investigates the ghostly presences/absences manifested in the landscape through sound, dance, gesture and silence - whilst responding to the secret ontologies of inanimate objects, architectures, the politics of dreams as well as, the echoes and ethics of the modes of operating things. Conceived as an ode to the poetics of slowness, suspension, divinity, unfitness and wait, The Ether echoes the uncapturable, and echoes Tetine's recurrent and unconditional love for Beckett’s philosophical theatrics of existence, un-communicability and non-performance.

[PT] O ÉTER - Preludio No.1 O ÉTER é uma meditação sônica-afásica reflexiva (des) rítmica na forma de um prelúdio (para violoncelo, dança, resíduos, ar, vento, corpo e respiração). A peça é composta por 7 movimentos lentos, distintos, mas complementares, que exploram a atmosfera e a metafísica de sintaxes indomadas de tempo, espaço, voz, ritmo e respiração. O prelúdio fala de quietude, devires, luminosidades, valor, respiração e fluídos corporais, pois investiga as presenças / ausências fantasmagóricas que se manifestam na paisagem através da som, dança, gesto e silêncio - enquanto responde às ontologias secretas de objetos inanimados, arquiteturas, a política dos sonhos, bem como os ecos e a ética dos modus operandis das coisas. Concebido como uma ode à poética da lentidão, suspensão, divindade, incapacidade e espera, O Éter ecoa o incapturável e ecoa o amor recorrente e incondicional de Tetine pelo teatro filosófico existencial de Beckett, incomunicabilidade e não performance. TETINE é ELIETE MEJORADO e BRUNO VERNER. BRUNO VERNER é um compositor, artista e poeta brasileiro radicado em Londres. Com ELIETE MEJORADO, formou o TETINE - um organismo híbrido tropical-mutante-punk-funk nascido em São Paulo em 1995. Desde então, os dois artistas criaram uma infinidade de trabalhos performáticos, sonoros e artísticos, da palavra falada à eletrônica, incluindo performances ritualísticas, instalações, rádio, filme e vídeo e projetos curatoriais independentes. YOKO AFI é uma jovem violoncelista e compositora radicada em Londres. Recentemente, ela recebeu o Prêmio Joan Scrutton para Jovens Músicos no Reino Unido para estudar na prestigiosa Guildhall Junior School of Music and Drama. Yoko escreveu e executou a música original para O Éter - Prelúdio No.1.
