Created by artists-researchers of the arts of the body in Salvador, the collective and collaborative platform Zona Tórrida develops a studies cycle with four meetings, or blades, as its members prefer, people dedicated to the possible relations between body and culture, art, society, and critique. 

Resulting from the artistic research for creating dance in different configurations, the platform’s main characteristic is the inventiveness applied to the content produced. From texts, videos, images, illustrations, and photographs, possible forms of doing dance are experienced, proposing several reflections targeted at developing the critique field. 

“While agent subjects, we invest in the production of the dance knowledge from intersectional perspectives, valuing the practices of collaboration and respect among the different, without a need for consensus, but committed to the critique because we see in our horizon the construction of a more diverse and plural field in terms of access to visibility spaces and production means,” the team in charge affirms, which also invited two artists for the studies journey, made up as follows:

Meeting/Blade 1
Under what historical and aesthetic circumstances does talking about dance as politics become justifiable and necessary? What type of politics and power do we want to communicate with dance? Above all, what type of relationship can be established between dance and politics so that the political activation strategies may reveal more about the dance. Is there a politics of dancing currently under change? Or is it possible that politics controls the dance and manipulates its meaning? Is dance endowed with a “political unconscious?”

Meeting/Blade 2
Approach the dance from reflections regarding the space and discuss its possible configurations, like installations, dances on the street, performances, daily interventions, and social dances. Problematize the reason why these compositional forms of dance are perceived as “without mastery,” “without technique,” or “alternatives” Reflect the choreography not only for its movement but for the associated relations, to put into context: the disobedience, escape from rules and hegemonic ways of dancing. 

Meeting/Blade 3
Discuss the dance critique as a field of investigative study from the overlapping of race, class, and gender. How can this process happen within a non-destructive but cooperative perspective? How to establish non-toxic critical dance talks? This meeting intends to look at dance creations with a critical feeling of the world against the colonial, understanding that the entire artistic process is aesthetic-political and that it can provide adaptive answers to the now with indigenous and Afro-diasporic resumptions? Organize questions, point out paths, strengthen the legs so that more artists and people interested in it can find ways to walk. What urgent questions are made by the works and by whoever places them into the world? What do they say about the way the world is inhabited, and what world is this? Strengthen practices and ways of thinking/doing that challenge the uneven distribution of people’s positions and practices hierarchically and socially ordered.

Meeting/Blade 4
The dance scene is made with and by bodies that shift in time-space, and this movement goes beyond the scene. The relations that the dance doers establish with the world around them are determinant to the artistic creation and configuration processes. The macrostructure elements in which they are inserted into are also elements in the artistic creation – whether of art or ways of being, existing, and relate, which intertwine. Performatically speaking, artists create dances and also create worlds and realities. This meeting approaches the relations between management, production, and creation, between ways of existing and ways of creating that present themselves as an aesthetic experience in the form of dance projects.
