Escambo is a piece of citrus and tropical dance. The work manifests the opening of two meanings as a substantial role, inviting the public to a game of aromas, choruses, rhythms and movement. To dislodge 50 laranjas from their traditional context for the stage, with a broad purpose to notion of everyday life and propose new aesthetic and sensory perceptions. Escambo is structured as a choreographic prancha that frees, through movement, a cor no espaço. A fun back and forth game between the sensory, or the architectural, the performers and the spectator.
