A discussion of the process involved in the reprise of the 2004 piece O Samba do Crioulo Doido (The Samba of the Crazy Black Man) becomes the starting point here for talking about the representation of the black body, the trajectories of dance in Brazil, and also observing how a piece can resist the passing of time, still topical fifteen years after it was created.
With the extremely unfavourable political context in which Brazil currently finds itself, Charleroi danse is joining the initiative of the CND Centre National de la Danse and offering support to Brazil’s Panorama festival. With the touring and hosting of O Samba do Crioulo Doido and Calixto Neto, the festival is being given carte blanche to present the work and engagement of Brazilian artists today and enable them to be heard.
Programmed by festival Panorama, in association with CND Centre national de la danse, in the contexte of Festival LEGS at Charleroi Danse.
