Davi Pontes and Wallace Ferreira for Repertório N.2! The jury consisting of Samuel Feldhandler, Martina Gimplinger and Haiko Pfost states: “Through a clever direction of the gaze, ambivalent poses and sharp breaks in their repetitive, self-generated rhythms, they turn the audience into witnesses of their struggle for liberation”. Congratulations on the award, which comes with a residency at ImPulsTanz 2023 and 5,000 euros in prize money! We are very much looking forward to seeing them again next year. In addition, the jury gave special mention to Boglárka Börcsöks and Andreas Bolm’s Figuring Age and Mikko Niemistö’s Odd Meters.
