In a performance as radical as it is blunt, a group of performers, heads hidden in their t-shirts, bare-chested and on skateboards, make contact with the audience who have been plunged into darkness. They bringring to life the urgency and hostility of urban life in Brazil, and bearing witness to the violence they are exposed to on a daily basis. Ranging between collisions, racing and aggression, their gestures reflect the complexity of metropolises and the chaos of the human relationships that are formed there. Here taken as disposable produce, or places of expression for social inequalities, ethnic discriminations and conflicts of value, their bodies become instruments of a critique of dysfunctional societies. Meaning “crap”, “bullshit” or “blah blah blah”, tReta thus brings into action forms of hip-hop, from a battle to a breakdance, in a face-on confrontation with the Palácio do Planalto, the symbol of political power, while denouncing the corruption of the state and the incompetence of those who run it.
Teresina, in the state of Piauí, where it has established itself as a reference in terms of production, learning and research in the field of urban dances. While taking part in a large number of festivals and battles, both in Brazil and abroad, its members also organise workshops, public actions, performances and shows, tReta being their most recent production.
