Every society has upper and lower strata. For ten years, Brazilian choreographer Alice Ripoll and Cia REC have collaborated together. As Black people living in favelas, the company members of RECare familiar with the Brazilian police’s methods of keeping the poor segment of the population away from the rich by means of control and intimidation. The Portuguese word “acordo” can mean many things –it could be an agreement, for instance, or a wake-up call. In this spelling of the word it also means “the color of”. But what agreement did the social majority make with those regarded as “of a different color”? Are they only seen as a living, breathing cliché, as potential criminals and as cheap labor –or also as people?

The four dancers open up a space with their movements in which other types of encounters become possible. And in which our own reflexes and prejudices come to the surface. How does it feel to suddenly be face to face with those from whom we are otherwise “protected”? And why have we suddenly tightened our grip on our belongings?

“Dance as a political confrontation and a place of dreams... tremendous not only for its meaning, but for its modes of participation, too.”
