Cena 11 / Alejandro Ahmed

Monotonia de Aproximação e Fuga para sete Corpos / Monotony of Approach and Fugue for Seven Bodies

Part of the festival Projeto Brasil - The Sky Is Already Falling 


50 min

For several years Cena 11 has been researching the conditions of the physical existence of the body, for which the company developed the concept of the ‘Voodoo Body,’ where the performers' movements are triggered by something beyond their will. Similar to the form of the musical composition called ‘fugue,’ dance and movement establish a ritual in which, to assert oneself, one must always be the other. New paths and possible worlds are revealed.
