The Brasilian choreographer LiaRodrigues puts the question facing the disasters happening nowadays. What isleft to do?
“We dance to the rhythm of machines and cars, helicopters, sirens, we dance with rain and storm and burning sun, we dance as an offering and a tribute, in order not to fade, to last and to rot, in order to move the air and to expand, to dream and to visit dark places, we dance to become fireflies, to be weak and to resist. We dance to find a way to stay alive.”
