  • Por um fio (On a string)
    por um_fio_site2Mimulus Cia de Dança (Minas Gerais/Brazil)
    April 1st , 8 pm
    Venue: Teatro Vila Velha
    Admission: R$10 and R$5 (students)

     

    The performance overpasses the bounds of Arthur Bispo do Rosário’s embroidery, writings and other works in order to create the medley of arms and bodies which embroider the choreography. Electric wires and filaments of incandescent lamps merge with choreographic lines and the scrap of the dancer’s work, which serves as base for the construction of the piece. The setting and light designs arise from the tangle of the memory of things, the inventories of the world and its collections, the repetitions which reverberate anonymity. Light and shadow, insanity and memory are represented through the setting and light designs. The costumes were inspired by the way that patients in Juliano Moreira Psychiatric Hospital used to dress for local balls. The clothes were mostly made from discarded cloths. Similar to Bispo’s works, the pieces are embroidered with texts, words and inventories.

  • Punto Ciego (Blind Spot)
    punto ciego_siteCia de Dança Losdedae (Spain)
    April 3rd and 4th, 8pm
    Venue: Teatro Vila Velha
    Admission: R$10 and R$5 (students)

     

    The performance Punto Ciego is about the incapacity of seeing, feeling and understanding things, as well as the possibility of perceiving as real things which don’t exist. The choreography is about blindness caused not only by a physical condition, but also by the lack of sensitivity in people with perfect eyesight. The blind spot is a region of the retina insensitive to light, that is, where images are not formed. The performance shows a journey between the real and imagined experiences of three characters, who meet exactly at this invisibility spot. Different environments are created based on cellist Hildur Guônadóttir’s songs and on Ricardo Miluy’s conception of sound space, aiming at finding profound secrets.

  • Sala do Couro
    sala do_coura_siteBruno de Jesus (Bahia / Brazil)
    Teatro Molière (Alliance Française)
    April 12th and 13th, 7pm
    Admission: R$ 10,00 and R$ 5,00 (students) - in this session, Sem Título will also be performed)

    A solo work in which the dancer-creator takes his life experiences and unrest, as well as artistic formation as stimuli to propose questions using body and movement - through pauses, displacement, tension, rolling, falling and recovery. The choreography is directly related to the djmbê, traditional Guinea-Bissau percussive instrument in the form of a goblet, made by wood and animal skin. The instrument is an element of the scene and its presence promotes a comparative effect with the interpreter's body: both are treated and exposed to consumption – their skin, their work, in a waiting room, that is, on stage, in a room to be judged.

  • Sem Título (Untitled)
    sem ttulo_siteAna Lúcia Oliveira (Bahia/Brazil)
    Venue: Teatro Molière (Aliança Francesa)
    April 12th and 13th, 7pm
    Admission: R$10 and R$5 (students)
    *In the same evening, Sala do Couro will also be performed

     

    Which dances can be created from our stories? Which titles do we give to our lives? From the wish to resume her way in dance, Ana Lúcia Oliveira, directed by Fernando Lopes, uses her life as a poetic universe to create Sem Título (Untitled), a piece in which her memories, fears and desires serve as motivation for fleeting dances, short improvised choreographies that exist only during the period of time when they have to exist, leaving behind nothing but a track of its existence.

  • Pau Brasil
    pau brasil_siteAldren Lincoln (Bahia, Brazil)
    Venue: Teatro Molière (Aliança Francesa)
    April 14th and 15th, 7pm
    Admission: R$10 and R$5
    *In the same evening, Partida and Webcam 01 will also be performed

     

    The performance is organized by the experiences of the artists on Dance and Photography, approaching the topic of race in Brazil. The characteristics of Pau Brasil tree are its reddish-orange color and its hard and heavy appearance, both characteristics used to discuss gender and sexuality in Brazil, heteronormative relations, stereotypes and the stagnant state of culture. At the same time that it intends to be a pleasure machine, Pau Brasil also aims at overcoming these concepts, using the body as an instrument for torture and rule. In 25 minutes, the “chapters” of this piece find references in samba, capoeira and hip hop.

  • Partida (Departure)
    partida siteBárbara Barbará (Bahia, Brazil)
    Venue: Teatro Molière (Aliança Francesa)
    April 14th and 15th, 7pm
    Admission: R$10 and R$5
    *In the same evening, Pau Brasil and Webcam 01 will also be performed

     

     

    This choreography was created in 2007 in order to integrate the first edition of EIC – Encontro de Investigação Coreográfica, a project produced by Núcleo Viladança. Partida was created after a personal experience, when Bárbara had to stand back from dance. For this reason, the performance approaches a reflection about changing paths and leaving people, places, things and projects behind. The difficulty of detachment and the feeling of breaking into pieces are this choreography’s themes. The process of creation began from the choice of the song, the 3rd Movement of Heitor Villa-Lobos’ String Quartet, which gives density to the scene, and the choice of the space, defined by a corridor of light, reinforcing the idea of a direction, a path to be followed. From this point, the dancer and choreographer began a research of movements, taking as starting point the fragmentation of the body, showing lines and directions.

    web siteLeandro de Oliveira (Bahia/Brazil)
    Venue: Teatro Molière (Aliança Francesa)
    April 14th and 15th, 7pm
    Admission: R$10 and R$5
    *In the same evening, Pau Brasil and Partida will also be performed

     

    This performance takes as main theme online sexual relations. On stage, three dancers develop movements with relate to images projected on a screen at the back of the stage as well as different images shown on three computers located close to the audience. The soundtrack has a strong punk aesthetics and aims at creating an instability and excitement atmosphere, in line with what the bodies express. The lighting reveals and hides relations established on stage. This piece was presented during EIC - Encontro de Investigação Coreográfica, in 2011, a project produced by Núcleo Viladança, with the objective of promoting creation between its dancers.

  • No.thing
    no thing_siteCie Linga (Switzerland)
    April 14th and 15th, 8pm
    Venue: Teatro Vila Velha
    Admission: R$10,00 and R$5,00 (student)

    What’s in a gesture? A tenuous, insubstantial thing, yet it can be imbued with tremendous mystery. No.thing wanted to explore the following questions: can the truthfulness of a gesture still touch us, in an age obsessed with superficial physical performance and ostentatious images? How can the meaning of a gesture be amplified and opened up to perception given that, in contemporary society, the freedom of the body and its movements are a mere convention, a social dictum, the misleading liberalization of so-called well-being?  Can dance still delve into such issues? No.thing is built on unadorned movement that reveals what remained unseen and steers clear from the realm of consumption and clutter. As if, when we search into a simple gesture, we could hear resounding echoes. This research led us to an writing with a very physical and organic approach, at once gentle and powerful, inherent to the company’s style.

  • Da Ponta da Língua à Ponta do Pé
    da ponta_da_lngua_siteNúcleo Viladança (Bahia/Brazil)
    April 16th, 17th, 18th, 24 th, 25 th, 26 th, 3pm
    Venue: Cine-Teatro Solar Boa Vista
    Free admission

     

    Since 2004, this piece was created as part of a Program for Artistic Formation and Appreciation, with the objective of stimulating the interest for art and educating teenagers and children.

     

    The musical is at the same time instructive and creative, with dancers also acting as singers and actors in order to tell the story of a boy, who likes rap and skate but dives into the universe of dance, as he falls in love with a ballet student.

     

    Helped by a teacher, the boy travels around the History of Dance since Pre-History and religious rituals, through noble halls to contemporary stages, with special emphasis to the important contribution of Isadora Duncan to Dance. The performance is internationally recognized by Unesco and has been watched by more than 40.000 people since its premiere.

  • Sol e Saudade
    saudade e_sol_siteGrupo Dezeo Ito (France)
    April 18th and 19th, 7pm
    Venue: Teatro Molière (Aliança Francesa)
    Admission: R$10 and R$5

     

    Created by Guillaume Lauruol, in Paris/France, in 2005, the company Dezeo-Ito was founded with the objective of researching dance, eletroacoustic sounds and visual arts, and was always closely related to Brazil, due to Lauruol’s interest in capoeira and percussion. In 2009, the company had its headquarters transferred to Itacaré, a city on Southern Bahia. From this change the solos that compose Sol e Saudade were created. The first one, interpreted by Catherine Pollini, attempts at translating this word – which exists only in Portuguese – through the universal language of dance. The second one, interpreted by Lauruol, plays with the double meaning of the word sol, which in Portuguese means the sun and in French means soil, earth. While Saudade is the dance of absence, Sol is the dance of the reception of someone who, although born in France, was welcome in Brazil.
