Ismael Ivo & Biblioteca do Corpo
Under the direction of Ismael Ivo, co-founder of ImPulsTanz and former director of the dance section at the Biennale di Venezia, the Biblioteca do Corpo now opens a new volume, following its first dance theatre project, “NO SACRE”, at last year’s festival. Under the title Erendira the choreographer from Brazil tells the story of a young woman who is enslaved by her grandmother and forced to work as a street prostitute. Inspired by the magic realism of Gabriel García Márquez, the outstanding author and Nobel Prize winner for literature, collective guilt and the disciplining of the individual are the main motifs in this piece, danced by 30 participants in the Biblioteca do Corpo project.
