Q_ _ _ _ _ _

Q _ _ _ _ _ _ was a performance made during the ‘Transperformance’ event at the ‘Oi Futuro Ipanema’ in Rio de Janeiro, in December 2011. The performance took place in ‘General Osório’ square which is located between the favela and the beach, where people of different social classes coexist, in addition to the big concentration of tourists. The flipflops were selected as an element that unifies this diversity of people. To represent this contrast, we bind the ground and the sky through balloons and slippers. At the same time that people in the street were spontaneously looking at the sky behind the huge balloons carried by the performers, the people who watched the performance online confront the floor. The public was also invited to integrate the images through balloons that were distributed in the street.
