The title of the show De repente fica tudo preto de gente [Suddenly everywhere is black with people] refers to Elias Canetti’s book Crowds and Power and to the philosophy of Giorgio Agamben. The Italian thinker analyses the notion of the “homo sacer”, which in Roman law described a socially-excluded person who could be killed by anybody. In his show Evelin is concerned with the “bodies of blacks, gays and immigrants; bodies that have nothing to lose or gain in life”. In this immersive, risky show Evelin/Demolition Inc. create a disturbing mass resembling a primeval tribe or an odd, dark organism.
