SPRING in Autumn
28 Oct - 15 Nov


Marcela Levi & Lucía Russo

Choreographers Marcela Levi (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) and Lucía Russo (Patagonia, Argentina) explore different dance forms and traditions in their oeuvre. In one work, they delve into the rave culture of certain neighborhoods in Brazil, in the next, they tackle the historical and current stereotypes of the black body in dance in response to the domestication of people of African descent in Brazil who are told not to be too visible in public space.

Here, Levi and Russo film the animated screams and shouting during the daily “Casserolle protests” (the “pots and pans protests”) that rise every evening at 8.30 pm from the balconies in Brazil. The population hereby protests against the rule of Bolsonaro and his government as they largely ignore the recommendations of the World Health Organization WHO to prevent the spread of Covid-19. In this video, they combine images of the protests with fragments of one of their performances HARM — ONY. They also wrote an essay about it.

Bio: Marcela Levi & Lucía Russo are choreographers. In 2010, they founded Improvável Produções (Improbable Productions) in Rio de Janeiro, a space for training, research and creation responsible for the conception, creation and production of dance projects presented in inumerous art centers, museums, festivals and theatres in Latin America and Europe. Levi & Russo are committed to a polyphonic artistic direction in which different inventive positions intertwine in a process that embraces deviant lines, dissent and internal differences as a constructive critical force and not as self-exclusive polarities.
