I'M NOT JUST ME IN MYSELF STATE OF NATURE - PROCEDURE 01

Choreography: Alejandro Ahmed

This performance by Grupo Cena 11 offers an anarcho-choreographic counterpoint to the concept of “Brazilian people”, found in the work of anthropologist Darcy Ribeiro (1922-1997). A dance proposed as an algorithmic ecosystem, balancing the relations between otherness, identity, behaviour and language. From this point of view and intertwined with Darcy Ribeiro’s definition of an “ethnic national identity”, the performance seeks to practice a counterpoint, showing identity as a constant flux of changes and asking: what could a “Brazilian dance” be? In this conversion into dance and choreography, the connections between elements such as otherness and identity are modulated with the aim of overcoming hierarchies between language and behaviour. For this piece, choreographer Alejandro Ahmed focuses on the combination of artificial intelligence, performance, movement material, video and technology.
