The idea and aim of the collaborative project "The Unspeakable" is to initiate a creative process that explores social and political concepts through dance and theatrical means. How can trauma be reflected and represented artistically and what are the historical aspects that make individual traumas collective?
Telmo Branco works as a queer artist interdisciplinary; he is trained in acting, performing and contemporary dance. He is currently developing "The Unspeakable", a performance research about the cultural stigmatisation of trauma. He is also working on "The Tradition", a performance film about generational traditions and systematic oppression. His short film "The Kingdom" has been screened in international film theatres and has received honourable mentions from Inshadow - Lisbon Screen Dance Festival and Rollout Macau Dance Festival.
Telmo is a member of one of the choreographic teams involved in "Moving the Forum" at the Humboldt Forum (Berlin Palace).
In addition to developing his own projects, Telmo has collaborated with artists from various fields such as Veronica Riz (IT), Helena Waldmann (DE), Nir de Wolff (IL), Annelie Andre (AT), Alexandra Pirici (RO), Falk Richter (DE), Lea Pitschke and Michael Baumann (DE), Shang-Chi Sun (TW) Ximo Flores (ES), etc.
