Ár.vore’ brings to São Paulo acrobatics and aerial dance show inspired by a book by Ailton Krenak

The show “Ár.vore”, which combines aerial dance and acrobatics with projections of images of nature, premieres this Friday (23) at Teatro Antunes Filho, at Sesc Vila Mariana, in the southern region.

Produced by the group Cia Cânica Nau de Ícaros, the show is inspired by the book “Ideias para Adiar o Fim do Mundo” (Companhia das Letras, 2019), by writer Ailton Krenak, the first indigenous person elected to the Brazilian Academy of Letters.

Only on display until Sunday (25), “Ár.vore” focuses on acrobatics performed with the help of a system of ropes, pulleys and a climbing chair as an artistic language. The entire lifting system was developed by the theater company over its more than 20 years of existence.

In addition to the aerial movements, the presentation includes images of forests and rivers that are also projected onto the actors’ bodies, accompanied by music. “The project shows that art, spirituality and nature go together and are engendered”, explains the group.

Not only Krenak served as inspiration for the show. “Ár.vore” also carries poetic influences from the Italian philosopher Emanuele Coccia and the Yanomami indigenous leader Davi Kopenawa, co-author of “A Queda do Céu” (Companhia das Letras, 2010).

The show, according to the company, still encourages viewers to reflect and envision ways out of the collapse of nature and the end of the world through its language.

Directed and scripted by Marco Vettore and co-directed by Erica Rodrigues, the sessions are only available this Friday (23) and Saturday (24), at 9 pm, and on Sunday (25), at 6 pm.

Antunes Filho Theater, at Sesc Vila Mariana. R. Pelotas, 141, Vila Mariana, south region. From February 23rd to 25th. Tickets from R$50 (children up to 12 years old are free) at sescsp.org.br
