AVANT-EN PREMIERE “NO/MAS/SACRE” – Aymara Parola + Lea Petra + Reinaldo Ribeiro

15 April, 2024 garage29 OFFESTIVAL

May 31th at 7pm at Théâtre 140

NO/MAS/SACRE is a piece that avoids Stravinksy chitchat and jumps straight into the heat of the action. Directed by Reinaldo Ribeiro in collaboration with dancer Aymará Parola and pianist Lea Petra, it claims the right to anger, virtuosity and “…excess, beautiful excess. A liberating excess, an excess that highlights the repression of a society ” (Angelica Liddell). The performance unfolds within the seemingly classic triangle of piano, pianist and dancer, only to subvert expectations through a dazzling ritual of the playful, the grotesque and the transgressive.
At its core, NO/MAS/SACRE is an exploration of existence at the limits of one’s own body, where movement and sound constantly renegotiate the norms and rules that govern their encounter. Fueled by today’s urgencies, these tensions emerge as a powerful source of affect and turbulence. This deep commitment underlines the importance of creating a piece like NO/MAS/SACRE, imbued with a decolonial, feminist and committed perspective.

Aymara Parola

Aymara studied traditional Argentine folkloric dance, ballet and contemporary dance. Since 2011 she has been performing with the company Ultima Vez/Wim Vandekeybus in different productions. She have collaborated with other artists such a Ayelen Parolin (2017), music maker Ariah Lester (2019), Alexander Vantournhout (2021), presenting the work in different festivals and venues. Aymará is currently, active in the field of dance and performance, as well through multiple roles as an outside-eye-couching for circus companies, collaboration within the visual arts, photography and films.

Lea Petra

Since then she has presented herself in the world of classical music and in 1999 after meeting pianist Martha Argerich, she traveled to Brussels where she developed her interest in composition, improvisation and the performing arts. Lea Petra has composed music for various contemporary dance shows, theater, circus, performance and instrumental music in collaboration with the creators: Cie Ayelen Parolin, Cie ZOO Thomas Hauert, Ivo Dimchev, Cie Cincocentrique among others.

Reinaldo Ribeiro

Reinaldo’s work moves between the fields of choreography and the scenics arts. He explores what he defines as 4P concept: the relationship between the political, poetic, personal and pathetic. He has a special interest in an expanded scene and in practices and projects that activate decolonial perspectives. He is co-founder of the collective Lamajara (Barcelona) and co-director between 2013 and 2020. He collaborates as a performer with the choreographer Alexander Georgiev (Bulgaria) and with United Cowboys (Holland). He is an associate artist at Art House (Eindhoven).
