Urbán Bálint Különórája: Édenkert vagy Pokol? – Közelítések a brazil kultúrához és társadalomhoz.

Hogyan értelmezhetjük ezt az Európa-méretű, mérhetetlen kulturális és természeti diverzitással rendelkező nemzetet? Mire vezethető vissza Brazília különlegessége, a brazil kultúra egyedisége és hová vezetnek minket a jelenlegi társadalmi problémák gyökerei?

Devised in the context of the sanitary crisis, Encantado, the latest creation by the Brazilian choreographer Lia Rodrigues, sets off on the trail of magic and incantation, on a quest to re-enchant the world and the body.

In Brazil, the word « encantado » has several meanings. It can be either a synonym of astonishment and wonder or qualify the effects of a magic spell, as in the French « enchanté », but it also has its own meaning in Afro-American culture. Here, it is used to designate animated entities, the « encantados », which navigate between land and sky, dunes and rocks, and which turn them into sacred places. It is these mysterious forces, intimately linked to nature, under threat in today's world, which are the inspiration behind Lia Rodrigues's Encantado, a piece which bears the hallmarks of the context in which it was created. With the Covid-19 impacting particularly heavily on Brazil, the choreographer, committed to the democratisation of art in her country, asked herself the question of how we could « enchant our fears » in order to recreate a dynamic collective and bring individuals closer together. In doing so, Encantado is an invitation to return to natural sources of strength, in search of images, landscapes and movements which – similar to the « encantados » – journey from one body to the next.
