New video: Os Três Filósofos

Os Três Filósofos (The Three Philosophers) is a concept which was born from the friendship and love of beer of three cellists from three different countries and three different backgrounds. After a particularly stimulating conversation (and several empties on the table), a piece was written for three cellos and three dancers wherein their 3 different approaches to cello playing could be simultaneously represented by three styles of choreography. In the video of the piece, Englishman David Chew OBE (principal cellist of the Brazilian Symphony Orchestra) and Brazilian Liana Vasconcelos (Ballerina from the Rio de Janeiro Municipal Theater) work together to embody the romantic era. Brazilians Mateus Ceccato, and Renata Versiani play the part of modern music and dance. American Dave Haughey (composer of the piece), and Brazilian Danilo D'Alma represent popular cello playing and street dance styles. The piece culminates with all players and dancers weaving together their individual genres simultaneously in cross-cultural and cross-genre communication.
