The Brazilian choreographer Lia Rodrigues established the residence of her world-renowed Companhia de Danças in the Favela da Maré in Rio de Janeiro. As a Guest Professor she will propose certain questions and issues that she has encountered in this specific territory:
“We will work from the idea of ´being together´, using strategies of creation linked by a dramaturgical line that will be developed together with the students, articulating political, ethical and aesthetic aspects. What rituals, sacrifices, and agreements are necessary for the constitution of a collective? How can we consider the singularity in this collective? How can each participant find a place – although always provisional – and still retain her or his similarities and (gender) differences?”
