Promoting an important dialogue with the works of Edgar Degas of the 19th century, a photography production was commissioned to recreate some of Degas drawings with Portuguese dancer Carlota Rodrigues and photographer Henrique Morais.
The result was presented in the exhibition “Edgar Degas. In the World of Ballet. With the special participation of Paula Rego and Helena de Medeiros”, at NorteShopping.
Developed in partnership with the School of Dance of the National Conservatory, the photographs are an attempt to transport the portraits of the dancers to the 21st century, symbolizing and paying tribute to the artist’s unique vision he applied to his drawings, both in the most spontaneous gestures and in moments of greater rigor.
