Poliana Lima: Things move but do not say anything

Confined to the spot, eight women engage in endless motion. Permanence, resistance, identity and difference are themes at the core of the choreographic structure of Things move but they do not say anything.

Exploring gestures through minimalist and repetitive patterns, the choreographer Poliana Lima composes a score made of movement and sound which builds an enduring and atmospheric journey through different physical states. From this formal exercise carried out by female dancers, tension, agony and release emerge. One may wonder if Things move but they do not say anything tackles the pressing question: what is a women’s place in the society we live in?
