Creation at Chaillot – National Theatre of Dance
as part of the festival d'automne in Paris
Lia Rodrigues, associate artist of Chaillot – National Theatre of Dance, brings together a dozen dancers for Fúria. The Brazilian choreographer gives us news of the world, in her own committed way. In movement.
Working closely with the body, Lia Rodrigues claims her timeless commitment working in a favela, with a show questioning ecology and cultural appropriation. Always with a very strong approach of scenography – as Pindorama testifies that was shown at Chaillot the past season. Fúria touches on questions of alterity, choreography enlarging her discourse. “If we are the world, we are put into movement by a delicate radar guiding us” wrote the Brazilian author Clarice Lispector. Lia Rodrigues looks to question herself on this state, like a “world ravaged by a multitude of unanswered questions, crossed by dark and fulgurating images, by contrasts and paradoxes”. Carried by ten dancers whose commitment is never questioned, Fúria will be a mirror held out to the other – you and me. Together, spectators and dancers in this protected and open space that is the theatre. “A world of noise and fury”, says Lia Rodrigues. And dance.
