marcela levi


MORDEDORES (portuguese word that means whoever bites or whatever is bitten)

Marcela Levi & Lucía Russo | Improvável Produções
Brazil | Argentine

This is not a question of returning to the violence of myth, which purifies and redeems, but rather of accepting violence as something that is part of us and extirpate its creative, anti-determinist, dirty dimension; no longer to seek causes or understand, but rather to incorporate in another context - bodies in contact - the effects, gestures and rhythms undertaken by this force. What is usually feared and evaded, always presupposing violence that is exterior to the body or to life, begins to function as vital energy. Also, as a result, the violence expressed in this way perhaps conveys a shadow of eroticism, with the biting performers suggesting an erotic current running through their bodies.
