Jaguar

2015

Marlene Monteiro Freitas with Andreas Merk

“Jaguar is the name given to some horses, a dance piece and a marionette show. In Jaguar we are puppets and in this manipulated theatre, we entrust ourselves to others and to their hands: Mandinga d’ Soncent, Wolfli, Blaue Reiter, Prince, Hoffman, among others. While they are radically different, they also are our own extension. Jaguar is an excerpt, a hunting scene, or indeed a haunted-hunting scene.” – Marlene Monteiro Freitas
