Ismael Ivo & Grupo Biblioteca do Corpo//BLACK/OUT//


Ismael Ivo associates the drama on the raft of the Medusa, impressively depicted by the French painter Théodore Géricault in 1819, with the refugees’ overcrowded rubber boats on the Mediterranean sea. Ivo’s Biblioteca do Corpo® opens a logbook of the confrontation with the migration movements to Europe: with burning questions concerning the body, its desires and its suffering.

Ismael Ivo & Grupo Biblioteca do Corpo  //ERENDIRA//


under the direction of Ismael Ivo, co-founder of ImPulsTanz and former director of the dance section at the Biennale di Venezia, the Biblioteca do Corpo now opens a new volume, following its first dance theatre project, “NO SACRE”, at last year’s festival. Under the title “Erendira” the choreographer from Brazil tells the story of a young woman who is enslaved by her grandmother and forced to work as a street prostitute. Inspired by the magic realism of Gabriel García Márquez, the outstanding author and Nobel Prize winner for literature, collective guilt and the disciplining of the individual are the main motifs in this piece, danced by 30 participants in the Biblioteca do Corpo project. This year the dancers had the opportunity to work with international greats of the dance world, such as Jose Agudo (Akram Khan Company), Iñaki Azpillaga (Ultima Vez) and Marta Coronado (ROSAS), to get in touch with a “new world” that is “not yet complete but already in ruins” (Ismael Ivo).

Ismael Ivo & Grupo Biblioteca do Corpo //NO SACRE//


the education project BIBLIOTECA DO CORPO was be launched under the artistic leadership of Ismael Ivo – star choreographer and co-founder of ImPulsTanz – Vienna International Dance Festival. BIBLIOTECA DO CORPO was developed by Ismael Ivo as special method to coach and train young professionals individually and allow them to reach their personal level of excellence.

The body caught in the opposing extremes of being god’s image and a prison made of flesh. These days it is becoming increasingly possible to gain insight into the body and to read in its consciousness. In this topical piece Ismael Ivo, the dance legend from São Paulo, Brazil, examines the consequences of such an ethical, social, aesthetic, biological and spiritual experience. “No Sacre” is the outcome of Ivo’s pedagogic initiative Biblioteca Do Corpo and it deals with the phenomenon of a collective ritual. The piece attempts to find ways that go beyond the rigidity of rational thought to bring us closer to our primal instincts again. “Godliness requires a body”, Ismael Ivo says. To the music of Igor Stravinsky and German composer Andreas Bick, who works with the sounds of erupting volcanos and icebergs breaking apart, and with the dancers of the Biblioteca Do Corpo project, the choreographer opens a library of the body: in answer to “Le Sacre du Printemps” and thus to the complexity of modern life.
