MIRA - Ivy Monteiro, Wellington Gadelha
Feb. 25, 2024, 6 p.m.
Two bodies on a journey through space and time. Two Black bodies, each telling their own stories. These stories revolve around dissidence, racialisation and repression. Over time, these stories intermingle until an encounter becomes inevitable - it seems almost pre-programmed. But by whom? What forces are at play?
Ivy Monteiro, a Swiss-based choreographer and performer, and Wellington Gadelha, a choreographer and performer from Ivy's home region in Brazil, meet in their joint piece MIRA. Using vogue and dances from the Afro-diaspora in north-east Brazil, they explore where their emotional geographies overlap and how they can communicate with each other - perhaps even attempt to merge. In a swirl of symbols and ritual movement patterns, they unleash a powerful, pulsating work.
