Marcela Levi


Dance / Performance - Rio de Janeiro

Festival Complicitats 2008

︎ La Caldera, Barcelona

25/02 | 21:00

Spanish Premiere

A necklace with twenty-five meters of pearls, an embalmed bull's head with large horns, a dress, hair clips, a bicycle's rear light and a (female) body.  In-organic by Marcela Levi is a feminist reinterpretation of a traditional Brazilian ritual in which men dressed like cowboys lasso the women they fancy: "He likes it, she likes it, and that's how it is", says repetitively and ironically Marcela Levi during her performance. Last year, the Brazilian nation-wide newspaper Jornal do Brazil, mentioned In-Organic as one of the best dance creations of the year 2007.  A must-see.
