La Burla [The Scam] is a choreographic fiction that follows two individuals living in a dystopian reality. The coming together of sacred and profane takes the form of rituals and invocations of entities emerging from the depths. Female saints, witches, psychics, devils, monsters and heroines inhabit the imaginary of this piece, giving voice and body to an assorted medieval iconographic repertoire. La Burla is the result of the partnership between Bruno Brandolino (Uruguay) and Bibi Dória (Brazil) in collaboration with Leticia Skrycky (Uruguay).


Bruno Brandolino is a choreographer, performer and performing arts maker. He studied acting at the Multidisciplinary Performing Arts School (EMAD) and dance at inDANS – School of Movement Arts in Montevideo, Uruguay. He currently lives in Lisbon. He has been working professionally in the fields of dance, theatre and performance since 2015, having collaborated with artists such as Tamara Cubas, Sofia Dias and Vítor Roriz, Carlos Manuel Oliveira, Andrea Arobba and Bruna Carvalho. He has also focused on his own pieces since 2019, having created two works: El Universo no se asemeja a nada [The Universe Resembles Nothing] (2019)—created in the scope of the Advanced Programme of Creation in Performing Arts II by Forum Dança with a grant from Uruguay’s Ministry of Education and Culture and presented at Espaço Alkantara, La Place de la Danse, Szene Zeigen Performing Arts Festival, Cartografias #2 and Spain’s Cultural Centre—and La Burla (2022), in collaboration with artist Bibi Dória, and with a set and lighting design by Leticia Skrycky.

Bibi Dória has a degree in dance from the State University of Campinas. Her work intersects dance, performance and film. Her first solo piece, É Puro Glacê [Its’ Pure Frosting] (2019), was made in the scope of the Advanced Programme of Creation in Performing Arts by Forum Dança, and it was presented at the Choreographic Development Centre, Cartografias #2 Festival and Planalto Festival. In 2020, she won a dance residency at the São Paulo Museum of Image and Sound, where she directed the video art piece o que conto por carta [What I Say in a Letter]. In 2021, she created the performance nome de filme [Film Name], which was presented at the Pancas Palha Palace during the Interferências programme. She co-created and performed in La Burla, directed by Bruno Brandolino, which premiered at Transborda Festival. She currently lives in Lisbon, where she performs in the project Cobertos pelo Céu [Covered by Sky], by Gustavo Ciríaco, and works on the creation of the piece Miquelina e Miguel [Miquelina and Miguel], by Miguel Pereira, which premiers in July at Teatro do Bairro Alto.
