Outrar means becoming the other, being contaminated by the other in a practice of continuous exchange. After her successful choreographic masterpiece Fúria – an explosive performance that caused a stir on the main stage of the Théâtre National at the Kunstenfestivaldesarts in 2019 – Lia Rodrigues returns to share a work, constructed collectively with her company in Brazil and imagined during these last month of health crisis caused by Covid-19. Faced with the impossibility of travelling – and the necessity to be in Brazil – she worked online together with the artists from her dance company and with musicians from different backgrounds to create a new project for the festival, a dispositive in which the choreography travels from continent to continent, and from body to body. Outrar is a series of choreographic inputs and a sonic letter sent from Brazil to Brazilian who are based in Europe today: a powerful journey at the threshold between distance and proximity.
