Peh Quo Deux

“Peh Quo Deux” brings together five of the most important Brazilian contemporary dance artists around a series of themes proposed by the Italian author Italo Calvino in his book 1988 book “Six Memos for the Next Millennium”. Director Miguel Vellinho invited the choreographers Bruno Cezario, Cristina Moura, Marcia Rubin, Paula Nestorov and Regina Miranda to create pas de deux for puppets. The result is a show that joins animated theater with contemporary dance in a project that proposes a cross-over between languages of expression. Divided into different parts, the performance brings the audience a series of choreographies executed by the puppets with movements that go beyond the abilities of human motion. The precise technical movement of the puppeteers also reveals another layer of this pas-de-deux between dance and animated theatre, inspired by literature—an exquisite choreography of lightness, quickness, exactitude, visibility and multiplicity for contemporary times.
