InShadow - International Festival of Video, Performance and Technologies is an initiative of Vo'Arte, in co-production with São Luiz Teatro Municipal, which has already established itself as a reference in contemporary artistic creation and programming, with emphasis on the convergence of language between body and image, based on technology.
InShadow explores interdisciplinary atmospheres through aesthetic solutions and technical representation of body on screen, on stage and in other platforms. Genres and language intersect in video, performance, installations and exhibitions that present the vitality of a dialogue between established artists and emerging creators.
The program includes an international competition of videodance and documentaries, performances, a section aimed at children and youth, workshops and masterclasses, as well as exhibitions and installations, that expand the Festival by the city.
InShadow, body imagined within the shadow.
