ARTIST STATEMENT
Stella Brajterman

Stella Brajterman is an artist, actress, poet and mover. Graduated in Performing Arts at UNIRIO and in Cinema by Darcy Ribeiro. Stella has a 10 years career in Theatre and has researched theatre-dance in Italy with the Potlatch Theater and in London at Trinity Laban, Siobhan Davies and Wayne Mcgregor Choreography Lab. Her last works combined hybrid art expressions. In 2019 she presented her dance-theatre solo “Pé do Ouvido” at Galeria Aymore (Aymore Gallery) -RJ and performed in the Art Rio at C Galeria and in the performative installation “Entre Cinzas Ossos e Elefantes”. The key matter that moves Stella as an artist are the connections between constructed social spaces, movement and poetry. In her work as a performer, she aims to explore the concrete space of the city, the woman’s role in the community and her gypsy family background as a starting point to create new imaginary spaces and narratives.
How to insert the woman in this dialogue in a ritual sense in their respective urban jungles, observed by nature in the open and touched by the incessant poetry of those who seek the encounter with themselves. How to recreate the world in combination with Stella`s memories and fantasies which requires movement, strong images, and a way of being in touch with the ghosts who linger in chosen urban spots and inside her story
