Swinguerra

  • 22'
  • Brazil
  • 2019

Things become heated between rival groups of dancers in the swirling Swinguerra, a play on words with the dance swingueira and the word guerra (war). The dancers are generally non-binary – an implicit commentary on the repression under Bolsonaro. Submitted to the Venice Biennale.
