Corpos de baile

Corpos de Baile is

a meeting of bodies that dance.

Collective heating is the engine of choreography and as the bodies convert kinetic energy into thermal energy, the space that includes them is transformed as well. The choreography is based on footwork with 9 diversed performers that form an unconventional corps des ballet constantly reconfiguring themselves

in the search for new meanings about itself and about the meeting place that Dance occupies.
