Public rehearsals

A pro­ject cre­ated with dan­cers Joana Levi, Lucas Fon­seca, Mar­tim Gueller and Wash­ing­ton Silva, in which cho­reo­graph­ers Mar­cela Levi and Lucía Russo reflect on the notion of polyrhythm.

After their impress­ive Let It Burn, a solo per­formed in Caen in Septem­ber 2021, the Improvável Produções com­pany is now work­ing on this new piece, which con­tin­ues their work on see­ing the world dif­fer­ently. The notion of poly­rhythm, in its music­al sense but also in its polit­ic­al one, is what inspires them today: in a fem­in­ist dis­course, it is used to make tra­di­tion­ally ignored group dynam­ics vis­ible and ques­tion how his­tory has hitherto been writ­ten, from the point of view of the vic­tors. Poly­rhythm also allows het­ero­gen­eous voices and bod­ies to coex­ist, as in the trop­ic­al forest. It is the oth­er dir­ec­tion used by the com­pany in 3 against 2: Psy­cho Trop­ics: to devel­op a vis­ion of the forest as a net­work of inter­twined lives and a sym­phony of inter­weaved sounds. The piece sees the forest as a poly­rhythm and pro­poses an ima­gin­at­ive exer­cise which seeks to blur dis­tances and invent unlikely encounters.
