2011 | conversations à la table – Kortrijk,BE

In November  2011, Dani Lima and Alex Cassal were in a residency at Kunstencentrum Buda, in Kortijk, Belgium, in the context of the Europália.Brasil Festival, to discuss on the dramaturgy of Cia Dani Lima’s new creation for 2012, based on the research project “100 highlight gestures of the XXth century”.

The dramaturgy of a piece grounded in such a vast field is organized based on the criteria by which choices are made, on the perspectives adopted at every moment, on the micro to the macro, on the individual to the common, on the subjective to the social. How to satisfy the magnitude of the theme without it becoming diluted in the horizontality of encyclopedias? What experiences do we seek through this project?
