Forces acting within the Earth, generally unseen by humans, manifest themselves in awesome displays of fiery power. Vulcão is a masterpiece collaboration between choreographer Marciano Silva dos Santos, composer Divanir Antonio Gattamorta, and Contempo’s unified and fiercely athletic cast of dancers. Featuring the company’s dynamic Afro-Brazilian contemporary dance fusion, the work takes inspiration from volcanoes. Also slang in Brazilian Portuguese to describe someone extremely desirable or detested, Vulcão goes beyond nature to reveal parallels found in human personalities and relationships. From shifting tectonic plates to fluid and viscous lava, the work pushes the dancers’ physicality and displays their unyielding vitality.
