The contagious energy of a tribal dance, full of psychological refinement, by the leader of the Portuguese new generation.
Seven people occupying together a space of which they do not know either the boundaries or the depths. Their merging, a bubbling process that is constantly jeopardized, requires an equally symbolic and true alchemy. “brother”(1) outlines a genuine social animal dance with an urgent need for sharing: here comes again the very first human community at the heart of our contemporary urban world. The power of unisons evokes rivalry, fraternity and hedonism by convening fun, Krump and African roots. Following “Hurmano”, Marco Da Silva Ferreira – a former dancer in “Shelter”, septet choreographed by Hofesh Shechter in 2012- deepens, articulates and expands his experience as a choreographer with “brother”. This young Portuguese artist is ready to conquer vast territories.
(1)“Hu(r)mano” and “brother” have both been presented as part of Chantiers d’Europe in 2015 and 2017.
