Magical foam sculptures and acrobatic urban dance blend together in ‘Sonatinas 4 Feet’. A performance by Duda Paiva Company and Fractal Collective, inspired by the work of the Brazilian photographer Alair Gomes.

Armed with his telephoto lens, Alair Gomes created pictures of the perfect male body in Brazil in the 1970s. Desire and curiosity were the breeding ground for these ‘stolen’ images. Raw, unaffected, sometimes unintentionally aggressive. In 1992 he was murdered as a result of his photographs.

Gomes did not believe in the unique image. With series of consecutive shots he created a rhythm, a movement, or as he called it ‘Sonatinas’. His work remained unknown for a long time. Only recently Gomes was discovered by leading art institutions such as MoMA in New York and Maisonnette Cartier in Paris.

Paiva and two dancers from Fractal Collective pick up the analogue poetry of Gomes’ sonatinas. Camera and telephoto lens are exchanged for dancing bodies and foam sculptures. Their breeding ground? Borders, security, vulnerability and hope. A quest for the perspective and rhythm of today’s world.

REVIEWS VAN Sonatinas4Feet

De beeldtaal is ongekend sterk en po√ętisch.

- Theaterkrant (Keuze van de Criticus)

De mix van urban dance en de bijna documentaire, vertellende dans van Duda Paiva Company heeft een sculpturale zeggingskracht.

- Theaterkrant (Keuze van de Criticus)

The puppets are magnificently, and lovingly made

- Movement Exposed

Een jongere rubberen Gomes laat vanaf een zuil de camera klikken terwijl soepele danserslichamen zich meten met de stramme dimensies van een tafelblad en -frame, maar ook met elkaars uiterst plastische breaking skills: wervelende spins op rug, molenwiekende benen, grillige schouderstanden.
