CASA COMUM (Common Home) is an artistic research project funded by the British Council. It is a multicultural and multimedia collaboration between the Brazilian director Renato Rocha, London-based digital art studio SDNA, and ten Amazonian artists from different culture backgrounds.
Inspired by the term 'Common Home' used in indigenous cosmovisions, in which it refers to planet Earth as a home to all living beings - a concept emphasised by Ailton Krenak at the Lisbon conference in 2017, our research will explore the prescient warning of ecological collapse through the eyes of a culture intimately connected to nature, and the impact of human activity on it. To quote Ailton Krenak, "we have become alienated from this organism of which we are part, the Earth, and we’ve come to think that it is one thing, and we are another: the Earth and humanity," but the Earth, our common home, has a limit.
SDNA is a digital media studio with experience delivering distinctive digital experiences for galleries and museums, heritage and civic sites, performances and Festivals.
Renato Rocha is a multidisciplinary artistic director from Brazil, that’s been working internationally in the last ten years. He created shows to the RSC, LIFT, The Roundhouse, Circolombia, Marseille Arts Biennial, Unesco, BAM - Brooklyn Academy of Music and Circo Crescer e Viver.
