What happens when the images of a film are produced in the mind of the spectator and become uncontrollable for the person creating them?

Parallax is a live film, a choreography for light and sound and editing.
It’s based on the story of a non-existent bridge in the province of Farim (Guinea Bissau) in the 70s, where fiction was mixed up with reality through the voice of a radio presenter known as María Turra, and Joao C’s intention of blowing up the radio station. The Farim bridge is constantly falling down. The film begins. Something unsettling emerges from the dark…

Silvia Zayas Born in Leon in 1978, she works on the edges of performance arts, video and expanded choreography. She is currently looking into ways of translating the language of documentary film to other performance vehicles.

Her work includes: Ballets Roses (2012), São Tomé Revisitado, with a grant from Creación Artística MUSAC (2011) and premiered at Escena Contemporánea, Madrid (2012) in collaboration with Isabel Serra, and Parallax (2016).
