Not exactly a CURRICULUM, but a mural free of chronology, undisciplined as memory, drawn in paths of affection in the wake of the journey,  that sow new desires and directions...

The immense joy of being part of the history of this Pernambuco Meeting of Contact Improvisation in which I participated as a teacher  and guest dancer in the 3 editions already held, in 2013, 2015 and 2017.   The admiration and affection for Coletivo Lugar Comum has grown exponentially each time!

Priscilla is waiting in the room! 

(dance solo, 2010-2012)

By Poliana Bicalho, journalist and actress.


Stage in the dim light and some elements arranged in the scene: two chairs, a towel  white, a bucket, a stereo, a huge string of pearls.

 

a dancer enters  scene, with the bare back wearing light dress pants, playing on a flute "tahí... I did everything  for you to like me..." So, melancholic and ironic Priscilla awaits us in the living room... 


The smell of wine exudes in the room and smears the interpreter's body that in a subtlety 
marked by anguish, reveals an intimate face of loneliness rocked by soundtracks,
  until it reached the pinnacle with the Elvis Presley song "Fever", where Priscila finally became  it transmutes into her long black, sober and sensual. 


The proposed dance is an organic dance that goes beyond the rigor of the steps  choreographic, there is a nuance of playing in the composition of this persona, which is full of  bales unusually put pictures of love in the microwave and let the waves 
electromagnetic devices explode them. There is a passion in the scene, a being a woman who enters
  knitting needles and microwave popcorn make up the pearl necklace in a rhythmic way, having  as a musical background a fado. The scene is still marked by an inquisitive time, a bomb  watch waiting for the right moment of an inevitable collapse of life. 


The work of about 50 minutes by the dancer Hugo Leonardo  invites us to a dance show that goes beyond a 
coordinated movement or even a completely open movement, which the
  my view, instead of enabling multiple readings by the viewer, leads him to a  endless cloudiness. The work presented is mature, concise and precious for drinking in the  source of clowning and the art of interpretation. 

Little things between ourselves! 

(Group X of Improvisation, 2011) 

Last scenic work of 10 years of great affection and poetry in the body with Grupo X de Improvisation.

the last piece in  the 10 years of so much affection and poetry in the body with Group X of Improvisation.

Video mail to X

#1

He opens a series of video dances that are love and longing letters from dancer Hugo Leonardo to Grupo X de Improvisation, from Salvador-Bahia, of which he was a dancer for 10 years (2002-2012) until the danced movements of life led to changes in cities and projects. They are “handwritten letters” as they should be, which means they are recorded with a cell phone camera. The poetics and construction of body and movements preserve the humor and simplicity of the group's choreographic-improvisational look on everyday life, the use of objects, the extraordinary gesture, flirting with theatricality and clownesque..
