Perth International Arts Festival says
A visceral and sensory dance experience.

In a bare room, with a plastic tarp, naked bodies and water, Brazilian choreographer Lia Rodrigues draws her audience into a torrent of evocative images. The waves of the tarp are transformed into a fierce, raging ocean, in which bodies are caught up like vacuum-packed detritus, becoming flotsam.

From the favelas of Rio De Janiero comes 'Pindorama', an intense and immersive dance experience. Eleven dancers move between vulnerability and violence. From solitary individuals, they evolve into a teeming crowd, a collective body shielding itself against the fury of the elements.

In the language of the Tupí, ‘Pindorama’ is the original name of Brazil before its colonisation. For Rodrigues, 'Pindorama' is the expression of a physical and spiritual world in constant transformation, and in her choreography it is an attempt to make contact: directly in front of the audience the dancers seek out a physical equivalent for the natural landscape.

At times disarming, at others comforting, 'Pindorama' is all-consuming.
