In this performance piece on water, community and Brazil, Lia Rodrigues dreams up landscapes where naked bodies morph into living sculptures. A visual tour de force.
 

Studying classical dance in Rio de Janeiro, joining Maguy Marin’s company in France, creating a festival or working in favelas, the sky is the limit for Lia Rodrigues. She  particularly enjoys the interaction of differences, and so takes up her work initiated in 2000: to integrate the audience into the dance space in order to bring bodies closer together. In Pindorama, the performers mostly move down on the floor, on a transparent plastic tarp seemingly filled with water.  The nearly constant movement of this tarp shaken by the dancers evokes an ocean, alternatively still and raging. The audience, standing right next to them, can feel the vibrations of this raw dance. The political and ecological dimension of Lia Rodrigues’ choreography, as if sublimated by the beauty of gestural waves, transports attendees into the distance. Pindorama, which refers to pre-colonial Brazil in the Tupi language, is a committed invitation to a journey.
