Program

Performance Details

Trajectory of thoughts though a body. Impulsive new generation of contemporary dance from Brazil.

Marcelo Evelin, one of Brazil’s great talents, makes his Japanese debut with his latest work, which premiered last autumn. “Matadouro” is the last installment of the trilogy based on “Os Sertões”, an epic novel by Brazilian writer: Euclides da Cunha –the first and second parts were “Sertão” (2003) and “Bull Dancing” (2006). In its exploration, the body emerges as a metaphor of such conflicts as “official vs outcast”,“savagery vs civilized” and “specified territory vs a globalized world”. The eight performers transform into a labor worker, an Indio, a happy person, a group of sleazy carnival fellows and a rogue at a farm. They crisscross the stage for the whole 60 minutes of the performance and push the battle to saturation point. The dancers embody compelling responses to contemporary Brazil.
