We start with “After Dark”, by Dandylady about Branca Novoneyra’s same title poem. With vintage film aesthetics, the videopoem explores the contradictions between reality, pose and appearances. A couple interacts with fake movements and a painstaking care in reproducing the invisibility that surrounds them with invisibility itself. Without any traces of a complicity which dried up in memories, long ago. Only beneath the ocean can they be themselves. Under the water, they are free.
