Neve – Paisagens, Máquinas, Animais


Choreographer Né Barros continues her exploration of the landscape and of the body as landscape in Neve [Snow], a multidisciplinary fiction where affections are extended to landscapes and places. Part of Paisagens, Máquinas e Animais, a series that began in 2019 with IO, this piece interweaves music, film and architecture, poetically exploring memory, change and the cyclical passage from one state to another. Neve is a place, a layer, where circulation through the three dimensions – Landscapes, Machines and Animals – generates vanishing points that enrich our humanity and open new ways to approach the dancing body. This “body-in-gesture” remains the subject of Né Barros’ attention, always focused on the survival of the gesture and on the conquest of a narrative space: “What will happen to that body over there, all alone in that empty space?”
