2023年,Dance Reflections by Van Cleef & Arpels支持日内瓦La Bâtie艺术节,呈献Calixto Neto创作的 《IL FAUX》

作品直接了当地将舞蹈核心作为初始前提开篇,即一个黑人的身体本质上面临着被侵害或是被偷走的危险,而Calixto Neto试图通过舞蹈表达抵抗外部控制和湮灭的风险。在这部隐晦的作品中,这位巴西舞蹈编导不断寻找合适的文字来编写舞蹈语言。他将自己置身于破坏与虚构之间,把文字当作一种表达手段,视语言为一种安抚手段,但没有保证能够肯定做到这一点。

Portrait de Calixto Neto

Calixto Neto

Originally from Recife, Brazil, Calixto Neto has been living in France since 2013. He studied theater at the Federal University of Pernambuco and then dance at the Groupe Experimental de Danse in his hometown. Subsequently, he pursued the Exerce master’s degree in choreography at the National Choreographic Center (CCN) of Montpellier. During his course studies, he created the solo piece petites explosions as well as the duet Pipoca, with Bruno Freire. His second solo piece, oh! rage, highlights minority bodies and identities, and investigates “peripheral” dances that are developed on the margins of institutional frameworks. A member of Lia Rodrigues’ company from 2007 to 2013, Calixto Neto also performed in creations by Volmir Cordeiro, Anne Collod, and Mette Ingvartsen. In 2020, as part of the Panorama festival at the Centre national de la danse (CND) in Pantin, Neto reprised Luiz de Abreu’s famous solo piece, O Samba do Crioulo Doido.
