Lab.Ei: StereoMono

Something is at work. We call this action impromptu—techniques that install the unforeseen alternatives to repetitions of predictable gestures and responsiveness. We meet pedestrians wearing headphones and ask to listen to a minute of their music. From this instantaneous act of sharing, the dance of this encounter is born.


Lab.Ei (Laboratory for Essays and Unpredictability), based in Florianopolis, Brazil, investigates the intersections between dance and philosophy through the production of events and interdisciplinary processes that unite theory and action. We are interested in the unseen, shared (intangible-sensitive) choreographies that bring emotions together in synch.
