Be swept off your feet by the physicality and dynamism of Brazilian contemporary dancer Cristian Duarte’s kaleidoscopic solo performance, which draws on the rich history of dance through the reinterpreted work of 100 choreographers who have influenced his artistic career.
The Hot One Hundred Choreographers, is inspired by a conceptual text-based painting by British contemporary artist Peter Davies.
Transposing Davies’ method to the arena of choreography, Duarte has created a dance collection that showcases his personal choreographic journey. His stunning solo unveils how the moving body negotiates repertoire and memory. Along the way, Duarte invites audiences to activate their own memories and perceptions about dance history and movement.
The Hot One Hundred Choreographers reveals how the young dance generation is archiving individual experiences and subjective choices, as opposed to the monumental archives of Empires based on the preservation of authority. Duarte’s creation was compiled by accessing the popular archive YouTube and processing dance clips, ranging from pop dance to artistic masterpieces, through a personal filter.
