As the Latin proverb goes, nomen est omen: several male and female bodies, for most of the performance naked, struggle with an alternative space enclosed by concrete walls, flesh crawls up to the walls, trying to go up and above them… The concept of this immersive dance installation, which might be the most appropriate definition of this type of performance, created by the Brazil choreographer Luciana Lara, is very abstract. And yet, that does not tear the performance On Flesh and Concrete and the audience, as its essential component, apart – it creates a strong effect in terms of senses and energy. Some parts of this stage puzzle bear lethal metaphoric meaning, which sublimates the disintegration of contemporary world: it is best seen in the scene in which the performers stuff their clothes with garbage, turning into large, grotesque figures – it illustrates what our civilization has come down to.
