Performance: Ricardo Aleixo
Brazil (Belo Horizonte)–based poet and sound and visual artist Ricardo Aleixo performs a sound experience of poetry with the body. Aleixo uses his voice, guitars, percussion instruments, laptops, bits of hardware, and his body in choreographed and improvised movement to take the audience on a journey through Afro-Brazilian culture and experimental sound. Referencing Brazil’s most iconic art, poetry, and music traditions, from Tropicália to concrete poetry, Aleixo brings Brazil’s avant-garde of today to Berkeley.
Event co-sponspored by the Center for Latin American Studies and Department of Spanish and Portuguese at UC Berkeley.
