The Portuguese word cria has two literal meanings: ‘young being’ and ‘to create’. In Brazil it is used to convey the favela you come from: ‘I am cria from Complexo’. With CRIA, Brazilian choreographer Alice Ripoll combines these social, vital and affective interpretations into a rhythmic and sensual whole. Ten dancing bodies establish relationships of production, seduction and affection. Their movements propagate to a mix of funk and contemporary music inspired by Dancinha (‘little dance’), an urban dance style from Rio de Janeiro. After her triumphant dance performance aCORdo last year, Alice Ripoll returns this time with her group Suave to celebrate life as a state of caringness.
