Alice Ripoll / Cia REC:
Remote experiments for Lavagem

Overview digital gestures

Alice Ripoll and Cia REC’s new piece Lavagem is inspired by the life of favela residents in Brazil who work as office and home cleaners for the country’s wealthy upper class. With the use of water, soap, and foam, the production would have revolved around the prejudice that the skin and hair of black people are supposedly dirty. In other words, the racism and structural discrimination that exist in so many forms in all our societies. The enigmatically beautiful video that Alice Ripoll has created remotely with her company is a fine contribution, also on the protests that are currently taking place.
