XXX - A Game Of Hide And Seek

XXX - A Game Of Hide And Seek takes a magnifying glass to the world of analphebetism. Many analphabets live anonymously - the people around them know nothing about their inability to read and write. Shame and desperation often lead them to create a complex web of lies, hiding and dark alliances. The creative energy used for these feats is both fascinating and results can be devastating for the parties concerned. Is it possible to find a physical expression for the experiences and behaviours of people who have created alternative means of orientation and communication in a world without letters? Clébio Oliveira creates an unsettling piece of dance, utilizing contemporary means. Ultimately we are faced with a work that translates the dynamic consisting of analphabetism in a society so deeply rooted in scriptures, politics that are mired by an overly ambitious educational system and the feelings of shame on an individual level.
