Christel Veraart’s latest music is featured in a stunning new dance production in São Paulo, Brazil. In Frágil (Des)Conforto, dance duo Marina Salgado and Bruna Petito explore human uncertainties, frailties and opportunities.
Veraart’s music is at times melodic and soothing, at others percussive and moody – a perfect fabric for dance expression. In the words of choreographers Salgado and Petito, Veraart “captured the intensity” and “found the sound textures needed” to create this impressive dance work of fragile beauty.
