Sandro Masai participates at BunkerLove Festival in the Furreby bunkers 13 July with:
My Body Your Room – Interactive Art Installation and Dance Performance
“BunkerLove aims to breathe new life into the bunkers with cultural happenings which both commemorate lives lost and ponder past mistakes as well as look to the future positively.” From BunkerLove homepage.
Sandro Masai took this sentence above literally and create for the BunkerLove festival this year an audio-visual interactive installation, where he lends his own breathe and pulse to the bunker.
“My Body Your Room” is an art installation in which the body of the performer (Sandro Masai) is the source for the audio and visual experience inside the bunker.
Flowers for Yemanja was the title of Sandro Masai‘s contribution to Alert BunkerLove Festival 2013 in Hirtshals. It was made in collaboration with the Aalborg-based samba orchestra Semente do Samba. It was a celebration of the ability of the human spirit to overcome apparently overwhelming odds and the ability of nature and time to heal over old wounds. Sandro’s performance was a collaboration with Inge Tranter and centred around A Cottage for Yemanja, the flower bunker which she created in collaboration with Michael Richardt Petersen.
