This piece closes a trilogy on water, the community and Brazil. The nakedness of 11 dances dragging along the ground in a sea of plastic makes an impression on the audience. What are the paths to explore, once again, possible ways of being together?  The fusion of individuals until they merge? Asserting our own boundaries and singularity?  What are the rituals, the sacrifices and the agreements that would be needed to give shape to a collective body, even if it must last only one moment? And what landscapes must be created for this new piece, called Pindorama, after the original name that the lands that are now Brazil had before the arrival of Europeans. This is the territory explored in this piece, the third part of a triptych started with Pororoca and pursued with Piracema. Lia Rodrigues
