In September 2023, Gustavo Gomes and his mentor, Roee Rosen, met in São Paulo as part of their concentrated work-stay to further develop Gomes's project Blue Shoe. While there, Gomes also produced and filmed choreographic material with São Paulo-based dancers.
This productive phase of the mentorship process was made all the more successful through Forecast’s close collaboration with Casa do Povo. Both Gomes and Rosen hosted public events and workshops during their time in São Paulo, and Gomes began filming the initial segment of Blue Shoe, which focuses on sexual violence
Blue Shoe will premiere at the Forecast Festival, March 15-16, 2024 at Radialsystem.
