Volmir Cordeiro (FR/BR)
She is 57 years old, has two kids and lives in a favela: Inês, the heroine of Volmir Cordeiro’s new solo. There is nothing she wants more than to become a reality TV star. But the price to pay for the visibility regulated by the centre of society is high. The Brazilian dancer and comedian Volmir Cordeiro, who has been causing a sensation all over Europe since his debut, Ciel, is fascinated with this character. He conjures her up, talking and dancing, with breathtaking intensity. A metamorphosis takes place before the eyes of the audience, which challenges the established way we look at things: Cordeiro sees himself in Inês and makes us feel the desire for attention as if it were our own.
