Devotees visits the devotheism (a fetish for amputees) to form and tack the creation process. The stump’s movement, the crutches, the  semi-nudity combined with props such as masks, scarfs, and jockstrap, an erotic private attire, accompany a body when provoking in the other the desire over themselves.

No’Tro Corpo [In Another Body], in its turn, is an essay on possibilities. What makes us subjects of ourselves and our movements? This dance claims to react, resist, and empower. João Paulo Lima’s self-ethnographic outlook builds a discourse on the story-memory-body that, at the age of 13, experienced an amputation of the right lower limb. 

What to say from an experience that may arise from the “body without the sense of absence,” as the Angolan writer Gonçalo M. Tavares writes? Playful, grotesque, and erotic variations gravitate around the ideas of the interpreter and the director Alda Pessoa when storming into perspectives to present  questions: What body do we have? What body can we have?

Engaged in choreography researches since 2005, Lima just launched Viço Manco Voo, a book of poems that explores other dissidences.
