Bahia de todas as cores

Bahia de todas as cores

Bahia de todas as cores

“Bahia de todas as cores” draws us into the heart of Salvador de Bahia's traditions, into the midst of religious festivals, colourful pelourinhos, fishermen and mermaids… It shows all the traditions, beliefs, stories and music of this amazing region in the north of Brazil. The dancers' natural ease in performance comes from the popular shows which are an everyday event in Bahia. These are the core focus of the company's research, which make full use of  the dance, music and all other aspects which make up the show, and so become a reliable source of authenticity for the choreography.
Dancers, singers and musicians with exceptional energy and technique present an account of the africanisation of Bahia through candomblé, maculelê, samba de roda and capoiera. 
“A new national tour brings this company to us tonight with a new programme and an even more spectacular production, which ends with the audience following the dancers and musicians out of the New Jersey Performing Arts Center. The sight of audience members dancing in the square outside the theatre comes as no surprise to anyone who has already seen at first hand this show by the Balé Folclórico da Bahia…”
“The fireworks and prowess of Brazil. Turn off the electricity; the dancers of the Balé Folclórico da Bahia will supply all the energy necessary for the show. The audience is astonished by every leap of the dancers on stage. It would be difficult to find another group of dancers capable of demonstrating such prowess in such perfect fashion....”

Picq, Charles

Author, filmmaker and video artist Charles Picq (1952-2012) entered working life in the 70s through theatre and photography. A- fter resuming his studies (Maîtrise de Linguistique - Lyon ii, Maîtrise des sciences et Techniques de la Communication - grenoble iii), he then focused on video, first in the field of fine arts at the espace Lyonnais d'art Contemporain (ELAC) and with the group « Frigo », and then in dance.
   On creation of the Maison de la Danse in Lyon in 1980, he was asked to undertake a video documentation project that he has continued ever since. During the ‘80s, a decade marked in France by the explosion of contemporary dance and the development of video, he met numerous artists such as andy Degroat, Dominique Bagouet, Carolyn Carlson, régine Chopinot, susanne Linke, Joëlle Bouvier and regis Obadia, Michel Kelemenis. He worked in the creative field with installations and on-stage video, as well as in television with recorded shows, entertainment and documentaries.

His work with Dominique Bagouet (80-90) was a unique encounter. He documents his creativity, assisting with Le Crawl de Lucien and co-directing with his films Tant Mieux, Tant Mieux and 10 anges. in the 90s he became director of video development for the Maison de la Danse and worked, with the support of guy Darmet and his team, in the growing space of theatre video through several initiatives:
       - He founded a video library of dance films with free public access. This was a first for France. Continuing the video documentation of theatre performances, he organised their management and storage.
       - He promoted the creation of a video-bar and projection room, both dedicated to welcoming school pupils.
       - He started «présentations de saisons» in pictures.
       - He oversaw the DVD publication of Le tour du monde en 80 danses, a pocket video library produced by the Maison de la Danse for the educational sector.

       - He launched the series “scènes d'écran” for television and online. He undertook the video library's digital conversion and created Numeridanse.


His main documentaries are: enchaînement, Planète Bagouet, Montpellier le saut de l'ange, Carolyn Carlson, a woman of many faces, grand ecart, Mama africa, C'est pas facile, Lyon, le pas de deux d'une ville, Le Défilé, Un rêve de cirque.

He has also produced theatre films: Song, Vu d'ici (Carolyn Carlson), Tant Mieux, Tant Mieux, 10 anges, Necesito and So schnell, (Dominique Bagouet), Im bade wannen, Flut and Wandelung (Susanne Linke), Le Cabaret Latin (Karine Saporta), La danse du temps (Régine Chopinot), Nuit Blanche (Abou Lagraa), Le Témoin (Claude Brumachon), Corps est graphique (Käfig), Seule et WMD (Françoise et Dominique Dupuy), La Veillée des abysses (James Thiérrée), Agwa (Mourad Merzouki), Fuenteovejuna (Antonio Gades), Blue Lady revistied (Carolyn Carlson).

Ballet de Bahia

Balé Folclórico da Bahia (BFB), the only  professional folk dance company in Brazil, was formed in 1988 by Walson  Botelho and Ninho Reis and has achieved considerable success in its  short history. Under the artistic direction of José Carlos Arandiba, the  company’s many national and international tours have earned it a  prestigious reputation throughout the country and abroad that is  reflected in the response of the public and the critics.

The 38-member troupe of dancers, musicians, and singers performs a  repertory based on a “Bahian” folkloric dances of African origin and  includes slave dances, capoeira (a form of martial arts), samba, and  those that celebrate Carnival. The company presents the region’s most  important cultural manifestations under a contemporary theatrical vision  that reflects its popular origins.

Based in Salvador in the nothern state of Bahia, the Brazilian  company made its debut in July 1988, at the Joinville Dance Festival  where an audience of 20,000 enthusiastically greeted its performance  entitled “Bahia de Todas as Cores” (All Colors of Bahia). The troupe’s  immediate success brought invitations to perform at other festivals  around the country.
