9 x 9

by Henrique Amoedo


9 x 9


The representation of the fertility present in Venus and the perfection associated with the number 9 led us to the conception of this work.

Danced by an inclusive cast of dancers with and without disabilities, this choreography may be the end of a 9 month cycle... a Venus inspired fertility party, a praise to the Gods and Angels, a tribute to the slaves, or yet a way of playing with the numbers... 9 x 9 for some reason...

(Henrique Amoedo)
