About The body on stage – challenges and limits

Workshop with Mariana Tembe & Milton Branco

Within the scope of ÔSS





This workshop aims to explore the confrontation between bodies, their coexistence and the possibility of a way out. The relationship between the normative body and a different body. The subjectivity to which this body can be subjected and the right to conquer a place of freedom and greater expression, of experience and harmony. It is intended, through the practices that will be presented by Mariana Tembe and Milton Branco, to provide a differentiated contact between the notion of represented object and the gaze of the spectator accustomed to a standardization of dancing bodies, promoting an experience and possibility of encounters in this communication. It is intended to rescue the beauty of a body in the inelegance to which it can be subjected. — Mariana Tembe & Milton Branco
