Pope L on Endurance

November 10th, 2016

American artist William Pope.L talks about endurance in performance art and shares the story of Baile, or Ball, the project he created for the 32nd São Paulo Biennial. Based on Pope.L’s research into recent political frictions and social inequalities in Brazil, the theatrical endurance project involves three pairs of professional dancers taking 8 hour shifts to perform 24 hours a day, for four days. They walk and dance along a mapped-out route at the heart of the city.
