The presentation “A Língua da Vértebra” is a
collective creation that arises from subtle experiences lived by ten women in
contact with the Angel Vianna methodology, over two and a half years of
coexistence and continuous studies. It also arises from the need to bring these
experiences together in a work to conclude the technical training course.
Ten backs side by side on the horizon, each
unit shakes itself
Like tide, it sweeps and licks the space
Approaching and departing from you
Approaching and moving away from each other
Dance is the language that unites us
The investigation of the spine as a central
axis to every movement, in all bodies, reverberates in multiple dance
possibilities. Each vertebra, each region, as well as each body, are essential
to the whole, having their own vibration and strength. Lumbar, dorsal, cervical
- tongue. Our entire body reveals itself as something that arches and squirms
together. A body that structures itself collectively.
