Oct 31 + Nov 1. Trrr / Thiago Granato (DE/BR)
October 31 at 7pm
November 1 at 7pm
Trrr is a call for a spatial and temporal dimension of reality in which the past is located in front of the body and the future behind it. A zone where archaic entities can be manifested, as never seen and heard before. It inscribes a dance in the margins of time, performed by a body that moves simultaneously forward and backward into spaces not yet mapped or already forgotten.
This piece is the third solo in a trilogy which is a choreographic document part of a larger body of work entitled CHOREOVERSATIONS, a research on different imaginary collaborations between dead (1º solo – Treasured in the Dark) and living (2º solo – Trança) choreographers, as well as those not yet born (3º solo – Trrr).
CHOREOVERSATIONS aims to create a network of relationships between artists and their public, real and imagined. It engenders discussions about history, fiction, authorship, property, embodiment, autonomy, absence and presence in the contemporary dance canon.
