Calixto Neto



Nominated for the ZKB Acknowledgement Prize and the ZKB Audience Prize

«oh!rage» could not be a better play on words to describe the excellent Brazilian dancer Calixto Neto’s new solo. It expresses astonishment as well as rage and upheaval. Astonishment and rage over the «invisibility» of minorities and their absence in the public perception, are the starting point of his work. Intelligently, Neto plays with invisibility and representation, questions the body and its expression by continuously eluding commitment. Black? White? Man? Woman? With subversive power, Neto undermines standardised perception by intentionally leaving his audience in the dark. (esc)
