  • How to Dance in the World: Sao Paulo - Pink Girl is a collaboration between dancer / choreographer Toshiko Oiwa and video artist Sarah Shamash. The last installation of a trilogy of videos that were carried out in three metropolises; Tokyo, London and Sao Paulo, Sao Paulo - Pink Girl is a street intervention, performance and dance video which reflects the larger concept and overarching title of the trilogy How to Dance in the World. The title can be read as a metaphor and rhetorical question for how to live, maneuver, co-exist, and balance in the, often desensitized, chaos of a daily urban reality. Sao Paulo - Pink Girl is not only a dance video but also a document for what transpired the moment the camera rolled when the Pink Girl character intervened in the streets of the famous Avenida Paulista during lunch hour.
