Our work, centered on the visual arts (photography, video art, performance), questions contemporary society and its conflicts: an individualized civilization, with extreme changes in behavior. As the clashes of values, clashes over morals, religion and ways of existence happen, we see the subject immersed in uncertainties and desolation, but with the search and hope in a society that comforts and celebrates life. It has 4 distinct video arts.

BAK Artes Performativas is a collective of artists coordinated by the director João Marcelo Pallottino, who, over the last 20 years, has developed research in the field of the performative scene. Based on research into the intersection of artistic languages, the Company develops a multidisciplinary and authorial work. In 2017, the group participated in the Edinburgh Festival with the premiere of \”Alice – Underground Lives My Buried Mind\”, performing for a month of season. Then, in March 2018, ALICE traveled to Mexico to perform another season. In 2019, it performed 2 seasons in Rio de Janeiro. In 2020, in the midst of the pandemic, the company created BABEL, in a streaming nature. And, in 2021, the ULTRAVIOLENCE project is born, a hybrid work, which involves performance, video arts , photography, in partnership with the Escola de Artes do Centro Universitário Celso Lisboa, where the group has been developing artistic projects since 2016.
