Derived from Latin, the word "encantado" refers to something that has been enchanted. In Brazil, the word also refers to mysterious beings associated with nature that travel through time and can heal with magical power. They are magical, enchanted entities moving between the sky and the earth, in the jungle, in the water or in the plants. The phenomenon of the encantados inspired a dance production by Lia Rodrigues Companhia de Danças, which was created in response to the pandemic and the associated health crisis. Artistic creation is also a magical discipline in its own way. It must begin with some kind of incantation that causes various living beings to meet and forms them into a composition.

How to dispel your fears and get closer to yourself? How to enchant your thoughts and body and turn them into sacred images and landscapes? Encantado is a spontaneous celebration of African American culture, tradition and life.

The performance contains nudity.

 


Lia Rodrigues is a Brazilian dancer and choreographer and the artistic director of Lia Rodrigues Companhia de Danças, which she founded in 1990 in Rio de Janeiro. Since 2003, the group has been active in Favela de la Maré, one of the city's largest slums, where they develop artistic as well as educational and community activities.

Lia Rodrigues is a warrior in body and soul. Her work resides on the border between fine art, performance art and dance. Through the body, it leaves comfortable and well-known spheres behind and sets out to discover everything that appears unknown and distant.
