Clay Women, Or The Women From Athens (2014)

Simone Couto

Duration: 1 hr


Eight women step on clay. They entropically bring the material to its complete formless state. They are breathing sculptures, a bodily installation where psychology unfolds right at their bones, fleshes and muscles.

The choreography embodies their return to the home of the self and their own private memories in order to step into the community where they learn how to negotiate and collaborate under mutual care.




GlassHours (2014) + Terra Firma (2014)

Simone Couto

GlassHours is an installation in a black room where sugar pours slowly through a transparent table top indicating the fragility of memory that can only be freed by imagination while Terra Firma was shown in a large screen tilted against a wall.
