Foreign Body (2017) from Clébio Oliveira on Vimeo.
FOREIGN BODY (2017)
In his latest choreography Clébio Oliveira explores the subconsciousness of transsexual people. What does it feel like to live in the wrong body and in the constant discomfort about your own sexuality? An unconscious map of the mind through the body is drawn in which instincts, desires, feelings, torments, fears and physical inadequacies seem to live in a labyrinth without exit. Or is there a way out of the inner conflicts that have arisen through the process of self-knowledge? In his solo performance, Clébio Oliveira explores the tension between newly acquired freedom, social restrictions and supposedly public provocation.
