A multidisciplinary artist, Odete from Porto develops work in the fields of music, visual arts, performance and theatre. Her work is explicitly autobiographic, making clear the border between the personal and politics.
She describes her music as a sensorial theory for a weary girlhood – a ghost warrior that becomes visible through mixing. Through transitioning. Failure, silence, brokenness and emptiness as the basis of a queer dramaturgy of track making. Her sets are something between anime soundtracks with lots of reverb, pitched voices narrating a tale of heartbreak, opera singing with no technique and the music of her friends.
Odete recently won the ReXform award for the performing arts, presenting the project "On Revelations and Muddy Becomings" at MAAT and in collaboration with the biennial BoCA.
