Dance Traces – Ritualistic Action-paintings is a series of ten performances to happen between the summer of 2020 and the summer of 2022. It is inspired by the African Yoruba mythology and the paintings are dedicated to the orishas (Yoruba deities). The Yoruba community spans the modern states of Nigeria, Benin and Togo, but is highly influential on the Afro-Brazilians. Sandro applies acrylic paint on large canvas using his own body in direct contact with the paint and the canvas. The painting style is abstract expressionism and the dance expression is Japanese butoh. Music by izemz band
