O Outro Lado da Dança (The Other Side of Dance) 


“I'm interested in observing the dance archive and understanding the hierarchy that organises the body. To approach the other side of dance and understand the secret of its  movement. Looking at its history and understanding, in an experimental way, the chronology of this other side of dance - and through it - challenging my body.” - Diana Niepce

In "O Outro Lado da Dança" (The Other Side of Dance) choreographer and performer Diana Niepce brings to the stage the voices of the invisible in the history of dance; bodies outside the norm. Artists such as Artur Zmijewski, Bill Shannon, Claire Cunningham, David Toole, Neil Marcus, Michael Turinsky, Lisa Bufano, and Raimund Hoghe inhabit the show, and each of these names, in their own way, gives voice to the other side of dance and allows a new body to flourish.

The performance is structured around the study and in-depth analysis of physics and the movement of artists outside the norm, appropriating their languages and transforming them into an identity itself.
