This table is a celebrate-in-action of the work and life of Ismael Ivo, one of the great dance Brazilians on the planet, who left us in 2021. A celebration that takes place from the testimonies of some people who have shared his art, built over multiple actions pointing to the future of dance. His legacy is also reincarnated in these professionals like dance incarnates in the bodies of those who have it as a profession and the audiences experiencing each act.
Talking about Ismael Ivo is to talk about his works and the artistic, formative, technical, and aesthetic processes that pour into each of them. It is to talk about the front and back: the daily making in dance.
Talking about Ivo is to talk about the memory and future of a work that is alive, in each one that has been touched by his energy, strength, creativity, and smile.
His trajectories have extended over so many women and men like a black eagle of huge wings-arms. In this reunion, part of this memory, like an “identity in action,” is called upon, reconstituting itself to beyond the fixity and immutability.
