Sacrificium Intellectus I – A Live Cine-Ritual

by info on

The SACRIFICIUM INTELLECTUS SUITE is a series of twenty two cine-ritual performances by artists Daniel Fawcett & Clara Pais which use video projection, ritual actions, dance, sound and music. Each performance will only take place once and never be repeated but each time giving birth to the one that will follow. Actions and characters are carried forth into the next performance so that the past leaves traces in the present.


SACRIFICIUM INTELLECTUS I was created in collaboration with dancers Joana Castro and Bruno Senune and percussionist João Pais Filipe. It took place at Palácio das Artes in Porto, on 14th May 2016. Below are some stills of the performance.


SACRIFICIUM INTELLECTUS II will take place on 7th June, at EmContraste Festival in Portugal.
