The principles of interdependence and complementarity that govern human relationships serve as choreographer Rodrigo Pederneiras’ point of departure for the creation of ímã. Smooth and vital, trivial and strange, the piece by GRUPO CORPO is marked by the stage’s constant alternation between full and empty. Solos, duos and smaller and larger groups form and dissipate throughout in an incessant game of union and dispersion.


The soundtrack composed by + 2, a trio made up of Domenico, Kassin and Moreno, superimposes tones and textures of a wide range of diverse instruments – guitar and ocarina, or synth and cuíca – to journey through abstract themes that are essentially melodic or typically electronic, revealing influences that range from bossanovista João Donato to ‘70s afro-music icon Fela Kuti, visiting contemporary Japanese multi-instrumentalist Cornelius along the way.


Using seven-color LEDs that were recently released by an American company, Paulo Pederneiras creates a new scenic spatiality where volume and texture acquire an “ethereal materiality” because they are made of pure light.


The whole, almost bucolic tones at the beginning of ímã lead to an explosion of color that is violent, radical, exuberant, producing unusual almost always dissonant combinations between them or in intense dialogue with Freuza Zechmeister’s costumes.


This poetry of polarities, molded by the magic that lurks in the convergent of the divergent, the juxtaposition of the disparate, the excitement that surrounds the friction, imparts a mixture of strangeness and indescribable beauty.
