oh!rage

Calixto Neto’s piece works on making minority bodies visible, and on remodelling their imaginaries. Based on a research into “peripheral” dances, in other words those that have been developed on the margins of  institutional frameworks, his first solo focuses on the representation of black bodies, grasped at the crossroads between several emancipation discourses. He brings in the movements of Afropunk and Afrofuturisme,  post-colonial research, especially covering Brazil, black studies and  contemporary art. This critical intention is embodied on stage through a technical strategy which is itself subversive: Calixto Neto remains for  a good part of the show with his back to the audience, a position that makes him vulnerable, while expressing a form of resistance. His body,  as a production space for multiple subjectivities, is thus reinvented  between lamentation and revolt, protestation and celebration. Through the narratives of this distinctly plural body, Calixto Neto raises once again a question which has been freely inspired by his reading of  Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak: can the subalterns finaly dance?

Neto, Calixto

After studying theatre at the Federal University of Pernambuco, then dance with the Experimental Dance Group in Recife, the Brazilian  choreographer Calixto Neto took a master’s cursus at Exerce at the CCN of Montpellier. Between 2013 and 2015, he created there the solo petites  explosions as well as the duet Pipoca, in collaboration with Bruno Freire. A member of the Lia Rodrigues company from 2007 to 2013, he has also danced for Claudio Bernardo, Volmir Cordeiro, Gerard & Kelly and Mette Ingvartsen.

Centre national de la danse, Réalisation

Since 2001, the National Center for Dance (CND) has been making recordings of its shows and educational programming and has created resources from these filmed performances (interviews, danced conferences, meetings with artists, demonstrations, major lessons, symposia specialized, thematic arrangements, etc.).
