Get a first glimpse from the “Nororoca” process

In her home town of Rio de Janeiro, the award-winning Brazilian dance artist Lia Rodrigues is an active, cultural force. She started her own dance company Lia Rodrigues Companhia de Danças, which tours the world, she established the dance festival Panorama, and founded Centro de Artes da Maré – an art and culture centre in the favela of Rio.

The process leading up to the premiere started in the Maré favela, one of Rio’s biggest slums, where the Carte Blanche dancers met Lia Rodrigues for the first time. This cultural exchange between the dancers and choreographer creates a mutual understanding that forms the basis for ‘Nororoca’.
