Documental book about Antonio Jorge Goncalve's visual performances - live digital drawing and object manipulation with overhead projectors.

It’s in the nature of performing arts to be ephemeral: that's why we need to document it, preserving its memory beyond the present.

The more than 150 performances performed by the artist between 2003 and 2017, solo or in dialogue - with musicians, actors and dancers - only existed for those who were there.

The book will be profusely illustrated with stage and rehearsal photographs, including testimonies and critical reflections, and an interview with the artist. It will also explain the context of the performances, a complete listing, and a full translation in English.

This publication will carefully document an intermedia practice, which takes place in a spontaneous composition environment, fueled by the dialogue between the various performers. It will be a document to inspire a new scenic practice. The quality and size of this book means high costs of production that makes it impossible to cover through sales. It will hardly be a commercial bestseller. That’s why I the need financial support to make it happen.
