    Pulsos (Pulses) is a video artwork intended as a complicity and a partnership between contemporary dancer Francini Barros and artist Elisa de Magalhães, released in 2005. The sounds of the breathing of the dancer, almost until exhaustion were the basis for Alexandre Fenerich audiocomposition. Separated in five parts and mounted like a tower, each part focuses the place in the body where the move begins. Pulsos is not a choreography, nor even complete movements. It's just as proto-movements or stimulus generated by reading books, impulses.

        Paralém is an artwork in video, entirely performed and made by artist Elisa de Magalhães, whose subject is the madness and the conflict between clausure and self clausure. One, who becomes mad, becomes free in his/her particular world, in his/her own confinement. That's why the woman in video keep walking from a closed door to another closed door, trespassing the two corridors as a specter.
