September 27th was for emotion
Launching of the book “Mana e Manuscritos” with Poetic Unwraping Performance in Rio de Janeiro at Travessa bookstore in Shopping Leblon.
The book was published by Aeroplano, with 466 pages, curated by Heloisa Buarque de Hollanda, photos by Mauro Kury and a CD with original music by Pedro Bernardes to follow the poems.
Graphic design is by Mariana Ochs and the book is made with sil print and parchment paper. The cover is a photo of an original manuscript that can be used as a poster.
Divided into four parts: manuscripts, quotidian jewels, visual experiments and pedagogical environments. The book presents a compilation of all of Mana’s work through the past decade with texts by Arnaldo Antunes, Antonio Bernardo, Adelia Borges and Daniel Cywinski.
In order to contemplate this, poems that appear on this paper book have been incorporated in the the Poetic Unwraping Performance, directed by Vera Holtz, with movement by Rossella Terra Nova and live music of Pedro Bernardes and Jaques Morelenbaum.
Now we are going to travel throughout Brazil to launch the book. More information soon.
