Piny {Lisbon}

Première belge

– 16

Anaísa Lopes, also known as Piny, is Lisboète. Extremely active on the dance and queer scene in Portugal, she signs her first creation here. Half-naked under chains and jewels that surround her hips, she begins her solo with a long and energetic swaying. This buttocks dance, which traditionally serves as a warmup, reveals the choreographer’s encyclopaedic knowledge of the powers of the pelvis. What follows is a combination of obviously sensual dances: twerking, dancehall, traditional dances from Northern Africa and the Middle East, Kizomba, Funaná, Kuduro, Caribbean dances and fitness courses. Piny proudly and uncompromisingly interprets these erotic repertoires and takes on the hyper- sexualisation of the movement, the obsession with form, the bodily policies of patriarchal society and the transgression of what is forbidden. Scandalous and effortless.
