Premiere Co-production "In the search of the _______" by Bruno Freire
"In the search of the _______" is an invitation to support and facilitate a new step towards the search for the wonderful.
Such research will not end up in a single object format, and this because it plays with an endless plastic and mobile concept rejecting the idea of the origin and the original. Mostly, to search for the wonderful that will come means to search for a formless form, to relish what is still unknown. What is the form of the unspeakable if not a form that has not yet a form?
In the search of the _______
The picaresque memoirs of a researcher out of breath, searching for the wonderful. An artistic story structured around a rhapsody of words and aesthetics. Like in a fairy tale mixing realism with the wonderful, he switches from the excess of the Baroque to modernism, from Bas Jan Ader to Manoel de Barros, from Marx to Kafka, from Joseph Beuys to Abujamra, from Latin TV to contemporary dance, etc.
He tries to find a way to escape a state of immunisation and apathy. To create a synergy in his environment through dance, through the body. Through aesthetics and the notion of the wonderful he looks for an opportunity to make a work of art in today’s dance world. Already this word has countless meanings. It was a Greek philosophical concept; opera aesthetics known in Europe between the 17th and 18th century; as a result of a research on the wonders of the East, a wonderful baroque brought to Americas, generating a baroquism at the basis of Latin cultures; this concept initiated a literary movement characteristic of South America, etc. That researcher will venture towards and through the __________________, wholeheartedly, never to return. We can never go back.
And now, Ladies and Gentlemen, get ready for a wonderful that will only be possible today.
