— Mariana Tengner Barros

Mariana Tengner Barros starts the creation process for her new dance piece THRESHOLD, premiering in 2022 at NOVO NEGÓCIO.

3 dance the riddle of the Cromlech of Almendres. The creatures that they are dance in the fluidity of the matter of the bodies. Instant Legend of 3 Cosmic Fires. Dance draws the unspeakable, what can only be experienced, and only survives in the memory of those who witness it. Matter is something to be experienced and 3 bodies flow through the timeless, invoking the absolute in the universal mother tongue: dance. Mariana Tengner Barros invites you to the threshold between the visible and the invisible. Choreography of constantly changing emotions, where the performers’ bodies reveal long-dormant mysteries.
