VOLMIR CORDEIRO (FR/BR)
The eye the mouth and the rest
The Humane Body2017
Four dancers, eight eyes – a piece about seeing from a new perspective. The young Brazilian choreographer Volmir Cordeiro captivated the audience with his solo Inês at ImPulsTanz in 2015. Now he’s back, “eyes wide shut”, as it were, as part of the Humane Body project: with hot hands in front of his eyes, noisy movements of the mouth and fingers that run all over the body. The body itself becomes a seeing tool that waters, winks and dances about that which eludes eye sight: the hidden, mysterious “rest” of the world.
