Calixto Neto創作的《IL FAUX》中的舞者

2023年,Dance Reflections by Van Cleef & Arpels支持拉巴蒂日內瓦藝術節呈獻Calixto Neto創作的《IL FAUX》。

作品直截了當從一個前提開篇,即黑人的身體在本質上暴露於被侵害或被拐走的危險之中,而Calixto Neto藉著舞蹈試圖抵抗外部控制和湮滅的風險。在這部隱晦的作品中,這位巴西編舞家不斷尋找合適的文字來編寫舞蹈語言。他將自己置身於破壞與虛構之間,把文字當作一種表達手法,視語言為一種安撫手段,但不保證能做到這一點。

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.
