In 2014 Marcela Levi and Lucia Russo began a long-term project that required the collaborative participation of performers in research focussed on violence, understood and experienced beyond its immediate connotations of annihilation, death and destruction. In contrast to the social imaginary (and the cultural and social policies) that seek to alleviate violence by anaesthetising it, through an emptying of energy ­– also obviously violent – carried out on behalf of an edifying harmony, Levi and Russo incorporate the energy of violence to activate a spiral of forces under tension.

The choreographer Marcela Levi, born in Rio de Janeiro, and the Argentine choreographer Lucía Russo, based in the same city, have worked together in Improvável Produções since 2010. Both are committed to an open-ended kind of artistic direction where various creative approaches intersect in a process that welcomes deviation, dissent and internal differences as a form of constructive and critical resistance and not as contradictory and mutually exclusive polarities. Here, dissent as the driving force of creation and thought is expressed through body and action.
