The Brazilian band Rakta will perform live the soundtrack composed especially for the film Oriana, by the artist Beatriz Santiago Muñoz (San Juan, Puerto Rico, 1972). The performance will have a single presentation, at the opening of the artist's solo exhibition at Pivô, on Sunday, September 5, from 1 pm to 7 pm. This is the first time the Puerto Rican artist presents her work in Brazil.
On the opening day, September 5th, Rakta will perform live music based on the film's soundtrack, in an improvised and continuous performance, from 1pm to 7pm. The band, formed by Carla Boregas (bass and synthesizer), Paula Rebelato (vocals and synthesizer) and Maurício Takara (drums and electronics) will also be arranged discontinuously throughout Pivô's architecture, in order to respond to the fragmented structure of the film and the exhibition space itself. "We sought to create a modular space where universes meet again, that of Beatriz and that of Rakta," explains Carla Boregas. "Since we did not watch the film before composing the soundtrack, Oriana was an imagined presence that 'wasn't there yet', but now sound and video will meet and I hope they can create a present moment that will make Pivô's space pulsate," she concludes.
The show, which takes the same name as the film, is curated by Fernanda Brenner, and is part of the 34th Bienal de São Paulo. Know more here.
