Talking Theatre:29 Sep, post show. With Alice Ripoll.

Vibrantly political, Alice Ripoll’s latest offering echoes the aspirations of Brazilian youth at the point of transition between Presidents Bolsonaro and Lula. A fervent piece that tells of the hopes of a disinherited generation yearning to reinvent itself.

Passinho, dancinha, voguing, samba, hip-hop and other styles of urban dance are the favourite playground and laboratory for Brazilian youngsters, eager to express their thirst for life and desire for freedom. At the intersection of political analysis and poetic experience comes Zona Franca, which steps beyond passinho and combines contact dance, theatre, innovative vocals and folk dances from northern and north-eastern Brazil.

As an extension of her work, Alice Ripoll creates a space where both performers and audiences can find freedom, at a time when darker areas are growing across the world: areas of social, economic and political struggle. After years of agony, it’s time for rebirth…
