Description of Encantado
Encantado. In Brazil, the word means enchantment, wonder, a spell for healing the world. In the space of an hour, the legendary Lia Rodrigues choreographs a collective manifesto outlining nothing less than a new cosmology. The captivating scenes on stage are accompanied by the nurturing sounds of the Mbyá Guaraní people, in an outpouring of beauty and emotion.
Lia Rodrigues biography
A major figure on the international choreography scene for the past 40 years, Brazil’s Lia Rodrigues has always prioritized community in her artistic work. Rodrigues’ works, performed in some of the world’s biggest theatres and festivals, are always performed in the working-class neighbourhood where they first take shape as well. Her entire oeuvre is therefore infused with a utopian spirit of togetherness, which also takes very tangible form through her social activism.
Exclusive rate of 20 $ for blind and visually impaired spectators.
Free for their companions. Danse-Cité is CAL’s member.
Companions available if needed.
