Clasicas Desfeitas vol. 3 is a shared look around time and identity.
It revolves around three main axes of inspiration, Virginia Woolf's Orlando, Albert Camus's Myth of Sisyphus and Igor Stravinski's The Rite of Spring.
It is a disrespectful encounter, an irreverent game that questions the canon itself and the artistic fact itself, starting from a discourse centered on the body. Dance as the main language that supports an open dialogue with life cycles, the fluidity of identity and processes of resistance.
Orlando (1928) by Virginia Woolf, a literary work that questions the creative fact itself, the temporality of life and proposes a totally groundbreaking point of view on gender identity from an ironic and humorous perspective.
As a second stop, The Rite of Spring (1913) by Igor Stravinski, a musical composition conceived for Diaghilev's Ballets Russes choreographed at its premiere by Vaslav Nikinsky, re-visited on numerous occasions and which represented a break with the canons established for both the world of dance such as musicals, considered one of the most influential works of the twentieth century, centered on primitive rituals settled in nature that uses dance as a ceremony of sacrifice and resistance.
Finally, Albert Camus's reflection on the figure of Sisyphus is added in his essay Myth of Sisyphus (1942), where he questions the very meaning of life, the absurdity of existence through the figure of Sisyphus from the Groega mythology. , condemned to push a great rock over and over again in an endless cycle, in an exercise contrary to reason, in search of an impossible answer, the useless effort to find a logical meaning to existence.
