Seduced by the mighty poetry of Jim Morrison, one of the most irreverent icons of the 1960s, and by his posthumous album American Prayer, choreographer Paulo Ribeiro let himself be guided by the musician’s words and spirituality to reflect upon the place of each individual in his relation to the world and on the place of dance. An accomplice of Morrison, but emancipated in the game of bodies, Paulo Ribeiro counters what he calls inner annihilation, praises the collective and sows a few benign accidents.
JIM claims the same place as always for dance: that of not allowing the ability to change that is inside each one to die, and the responsibility of accepting the role of driving force of society and of placing itself in the interstices of a humankind in need of change.
