Michiel Vandevelde (BE)

Andrade

“Joy is the proof of nines”, Brazilian writer Oswald de Andrade wrote in 1928 in his Anthropophagic Manifesto, the founding document of a Brazilian cultural revolutionary movement. It also states that “we are acting against this plague of supposedly cultured and Christianized peoples”, referring to the habitual stigmatising of indigenous peoples as cannibals to reinforce colonial propaganda. Belgian choreographer Michiel Vandevelde turns the European man-eater legend upside down in Andrade’s sense and launches a performative invasion of Western culture in this stirring, science fiction-like, sombrely gleaming female solo, fragmented through alienation. The brilliant Bryana Fritz dances a “cannibalised dance”, in which all references to its origins have become indecipherable.
