What is the mark of a dictatorship? How does silence scream within us?
“Atàvico explores, through movement, potential landscapes of violence as a force that makes us victims and perpetrators at the same time “ explains its creator, the Braziliane choreographer Poliana Lima.
Without wishing to create a narrative, the piece looks more like a poetry that is capable of generating a stage experience, experience that connected sensations with violence and its impact on the body.
In the project’s commitment to the “everyday” bodies outside the standard patterns, with the desire to share the beauty of movement and gesture beyond the canons and dance virtuosity beyond becomes indispensable.
The piece has the support of artists from Costa Rica, France, Brazil and Spain and has been awarded the 1st Prize in the XVIII Choreographic Contest of Madrid
