Nike's 'Cadencia' - Darren Bartlett's spirit of Brazil



Through Cadencia British director Daren Bartlett relives his past. Having spent three colourful years living in Rio de Janerio Barlett felt inspired to give something back. Bothered by the clich├ęs and misunderstandings that cloud this beautiful city Barlett set out to expose the truth; that not so tangible character that lives within all Brazilians. His documentary explores the symbolic identity of the South Americans, through sport and culture; two vital elements that unify the community. Through vibrant visuals, honest interviews (look out for legendary 80‘s Brazilian football captain), and traditional kite and carnivale culture Bartlett channels the spirit of Brazil; its rhythm or ‘cadence’. In association with Cadencia the documentary Nike’s 1948 Shoreditch store will be exhibiting installations, art stills and a large scale video installation. The Brazilian spirit awaits!

Public Show: 25th March - 25th April 2010
Location / Exhibition: 1948, Arches 477 - 478, Bateman’s Row, London, EC2 3HH

I am more than prone to monologues; however, this is solely due to the manner in which they compliment a witty anecdote and their ability to resemble concrete evidence when it is so obviously lacking. I often wish I could emulate that aloof character who coolly stands in the corner smiling mysteriously as if she has a secret. However, I fear resisting the temptation to involve myself in other people’s conflicts and responding through body language rather than verbose banter may come across as contrived and arrogant. And, I am not willing to take that chance.
