Standing, Falling, Sitting, Jumping, and Turning.

Each episode looks at the history, transformation, and interaction of these five gestures in different times and contexts, through a critical reading that exposes how political, social, and economic tensions intertwine with bodies.

Based on research in several archives, the series presents a collage of photographs, paintings, drawings, graphics, and internet memes with excerpts from films, videos, and choreographic works by artists from Brazil and elsewhere.

Histories of Gestures is a journey through some well-known - but rarely questioned - gestures. Based on the book 'Histoires de Gestes' by Isabelle Launay and Marie Glon, Publisher Actes Sud, Paris, 2012.

All episodes are available with portuguese or english subtitles.
