Up Projects, Contracorrente / Upstream, A London Rio Telenovela
2 Olympic cities. 2 time zones. 2 halves of one screen.
In the run up to this year’s Olympic Games in Brazil, Saturday 30th July will see UP Projects’ homepage become the place for audiences to step into the first English - Brazilian soap opera. Actors and audiences will be brought together through superimposed performances in a fictional online landscape to discover Contracorrente/Upstream.
Shot over one day and connecting live performances in the UK and Brazil, the two halves of the screen will be streamed simultaneously from action in Casa 24 (Rio de Janeiro) and The Floating Cinema (London). Contracorrente/Upstream is a new work inspired by Herbert Read’s novel, The Green Child (1935) by artist Leah Lovett in collaboration with Argentinian practitioner Maria Lombardini and UP Projects.
It is being realised in partnership with Foundation for FutureLondon and set against the backdrop of Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park as a stage for nation-building and in the context of Brazil and the UK’s current social mood.
