Carla Bessa -Germany/Brazil
Waltz No. 6 is the first solo-production of the young
Brazilian actress who has lived and worked in Germany since
1991. The performance is based on a story by a Brazilian playwright
Nelson Rodrigues about an adolescent girl, Sonia, whose reaction
to her changing body and symptoms of sexual maturing resolves
into a total rejection. She resorts to a dream world with no
spatial or temporal points of reference to the reality.
In Carla Bessas interpretation, Rodrigues text
intertwines with myths about the origin of the moon taken from
various cultures. Her symbiosis of dance, performance and words
penetratingly explores spatial, linguistic and physical possibilities.
