Today a few kids saw Sick Dance by Marcelo Evelin/Demolition Incorporada. The show is advertised as 18+ or anyone under the age of 12 being accompanied by a parent. So, we had parents with us too, yay!
Although the show had some challenging subject matter, the Jury still was interested in watching it. With their parents beside them, they braved the dark, uncomfortable sounds, and strange (and sometimes disturbing) movements. Afterwards the kids were a bit speechless but opened up a bit when they got to meet the dancers and Marcelo, himself. One of the dancers told me "...confused is a feeling, too".
Kiyo and Sani - quick power nap before the performance.
Do you spy the Jury??
Sani-chan made me a crane!
After the show we had a chat. I told the Jury the show made me nervous, too.
We were invited upstairs to meet with Marcelo and his VIP guests.
The dancers and Marcelo were so excited and eager to meet us. They had lots of questions about CCA. Marcelo explained that there was no meaning or message to the performance, and he believes dance comes out of the experience of the moment.
Kiyo tries to understand and articulate his feelings about the performance.
I can't believe this was one of the last shows. Just the award ceremony next. Wow!
