The Rite of Sharing

a work demonstration with Daniele Santana (Brazil)

The Rite of Sharing is a solo demonstration of work, performed by the actress Daniele Santana who for 14 years acts and research theatre in the Contadores de Mentira group.

In this demonstration the actress shares some basic elements of how she constructs of some of her characters created by her during her time with the group. She invites the public to see a little of the intimate moments, when she searches for a character through her bodily explorations and creations.

She also shares traces of the group investigation  about the "actor / actress - brincante", that uses knowledge of Brazilian popular culture, its dances and rhythms, for physical training and also for the reconstruction of a "broken" body, that pulsates and dances first on the inside and then on the outside, in the form of actions, intentions, and metaphors.

This work demonstration presents performance fragments, scenic exercises, the group's physical dramaturgy. In order to celebrate a theme and not just interpret it for the sake of dramaturgy.
Duration: 60 min.
