Lento e Largo is the new creation of Jonas&Lander.
With a scenic environment based and influenced by the work of Hieronymous Bosch,
Jonas&Lander inscribe robotic and human performers to create a visual apocalypse. In an unreal landscape both entities will socialize, dance, kiss, command and obey, from equal to equal. They will explore the limits of performative virtuosity, more or less subtle, of each performer. The robotic capacity of flying over the audience contrasts with the human capacity to kiss, expanding and blurring the borders of the action of each organism.
JONAS&LANDER have contributed both to their own imaginary since 2011, experiencing contrasting paradigms in both personal and professional experiences. Cascas d’OvO (2013) reveals their premiere as professionals in the artistic field, constructed in the public gardens of Lisbon and Guimarães, dogs and sparrows being their forced audience, and which made them realise the power of communication of their bodies.
