About Afastado em
Within a continuing expediting society that cares about the contemporary viewing of images, Johanna Faye presses pause and proposes, in Afastado em creation, a time-wrap where three different women continuously go alone and together. Inspired by physical techniques related to video effects such as slow motion, zoom or rewind, this feminine trio invite you to a disturbing travel. Frontier lines become porous or even fade so as to reveal this universal place where women try to move away from its core condition with awareness.
The choreographer Johanna Faye
Finding a middle ground through movement is among the key preoccupations of Johanna Faye’s creative gesture. Using non-verbal language, the choreographer opens a conversation that stems from the multiple sources of her inspiration, where the relationship to the dance floor, rooted in her practice as a b-girl, is coupled with verticality and a sensory approach to contemporary dance.
"Styles and languages esonate here like a memory, to consider investing, together, other territories. Afastado em portrays the contagion of energies and the change of gaze on oneself, in the mirror offered by the encounter. And the public is also brought to another state of consciousness, by the dance and the beautiful musical creation of Abraham Diallo. If Afastado em means "far in", it is to open other horizons. And as long as the surprise can thus arise at the crossroads, it is necessary to follow the choreographers on their roads."
"Nach (krump), Marina de Remedios (flamenco) and Kalin Morrow (contemporary) form a very international trio, as diverse as their choreographic origins."
