Ana Rita Teodoro (FR/PT)
SHADE (Fantôme Méchant)
“The shadow of a country does not leave her body”
Currently living in France and Japan, choreographer and performer Ana Rita Teodoro creates a series of tableaux vivants, which serve to bring Portuguese women’s folk songs to life in her intimate solo SHADE. Virtuoso images of subtle sophistication have her gush out her songs from a mouth that appears to be removed from the voice – like ghosts from the past that still inhabit our bodies. “Call them”, Ana Rita says, “listen to them, hear them – and continue to look for change and emancipation, like those voices from times past, by providing them with a new, different space in today’s world.”
