Hugo Mega (Portugal) is a dancer and performer based in Brussels.
He will transform Cunst-link in an animated space for reflexion and experimentation, combining a site-specific installation, video and performance.
During these days the space will also be turned into a temporary greenhouse which will host different plants all from the family of epiphytes.
The idea of this residency and performative installation comes from a recent trip of Hugo Mega in Thailand where he witnessed the harmony and perfect sustainability of certain types of plants, the epiphytes. These organisms grow on the surface of other plants and derive their moisture and nutrients from the air, rain, or from debris accumulated around it.
Epiphytes, contrary to parasitical organism don’t affect the status of their host, but they might even take part in its nutrient cycles, adding nutrients components.
These types of organism became the starting point of a reflexion on the duality of parasitic and symbiotic lifestyle, consequently broaden to human behaviour toward nature and our critical and controversial role in ecology.
All these reflexions will be summarized into a two hours performance where Hugo Mega will embody the quality of this specific plants in harmony and symbiosis with the space.The performance will take place every evening during the three final open days of the residency.
Residency : 18 – 28th June
Performances : 28th – 1st July / 8 to 10 pm.
Hugo Mega is a Portuguese artist and yoga instructor living in Brussels. From an early age, Hugo has been working and exploring his body´s physical capacities through dance and circus. After his circus studies at Chapitô in Lisbon, he moved to Belgium to graduate in 2012 from ESAC (High School of Circus Arts) where he specialized in Aerial Silks.
He has worked for other choreographers, created his own work and researched how a somatic movement approach relates to circus and dance. In 2014, he started studying dream therapy through imagery and visualisation work, which is highly nourishing and inspires his artistic work. Hugo correlates his work with esoteric and spiritual practices to find new ways to experience and create new material, expanding his consciousness both in his artistic and personal life.
