About “The Other’s Shadow”
Inspired by Dostoyevsky’s novel Notes from the underground, The Other’s Shadow is a multidisciplinary and polyphonic project that spans performance, video-installation, visual art, site specific and time-based media to talk about objects, people, landscapes and architectures that are no longer useful socially or practically in New York City. What is valuable? What is useless? What is art? What is rubbish? What is reality and what is fiction? What is true and what is false? What is success and what is failure? The project aims to discuss ideas between these counterpoints. The creation has been developed by Rodrigo Fischer in New York City through a series of artistic residencies and postdoctoral research at NYU’s Performance Studies Department supervised by Andre Lepecki.
Rodrigo Fischer is a Brazilian artist based in Brooklyn who develops hybrid research through the interface of film and theater, using new audiovisual, technologies and its appropriation to the stage. For the past seventeen years, he has been directing the Brazilian Group Grupo Desvio to develop performances, techniques and theatre experimentation with an emphasis on the actor craft, resulting in pieces like Short Existence, Eutro, Misanthrofreak and The Losers. He is currently doing a post-doctoral in Performance Studies at NYU to research the polyphonic correlation among images, objects and body in performance.
An artistic incubator since 1986, Dixon Place is a non-profit institution committed to supporting the creative process by presenting original artistic works at all stages of development. Presenting over 1000 creator a year, this local haven inspires and encourages artists of all stripes and calling to take risks.
