Work by Jon Burtt

CELab - Armadilho

Using a hybrid mix of physical theatre, dance, text, circus arts, video and electronic soundscapes, ARMADILHO is an intermedia performance project exploring the body, survival tactics and ...a small armour plated mammal.

As a means of negotiating a volatile world, the armadillo opts to turn its own body into an armoured sphere, a metaphor for the weird and wired ways the human body itself can react, transform and mutate in the face of perceived threat. ARMADILHO represents a continuation of Jon's quirky collaborative projects with this one taking a sideways look at the interface between the body, anxiety and defense mechanisms.
