Nine dancers start moving and alternately form a primitive mass and the sum of different individuals. This mutating collective works its way through worlds that are built up out of paradoxical images that feel both familiar and unfamiliar. Dizzying scenes of dominance and submission, exuberance and apathy, joy and pain merge to form an unsettling whole. Fúria depicts a transformative process that moves from celebration to uprising and war. The latest creation of Brazilian choreographer Lia Rodrigues is not only virtuoso and inventive, but also politically and socially committed. As the driving force behind Centro Arte da Maré, an arts centre in one of Rio’s biggest favelas, Rodrigues makes no distinction between her dance and the heterogeneous community in which she is firmly rooted. Neither does Fúria shy away from the complexity of alterity.
