A group of five ‘blacked up’ performers moves through the room as an unpredictable, rhythmic undulating body, moving as one. They mingle among the audience and come terrifyingly and excitingly close to them. Choreographer Marcelo Evelin, who has homes in both Europe and Brazil and spends time touring internationally, takes steps to redefine the relationship between performers and audience members. Does black continue to represent the unknown, the origin and the darkness? Is that a kind of war dance? Evelin was inspired by Elias Canetti’s ‘Crowds and Power’ in which the Nobel Prize winner tried to unravel the eerie phenomenon of crowds. SUDDENLY EVERYWHERE IS BLACK WITH PEOPLE deals with our fear of the unknown and our simultaneous fascination with it. The audience is part of an intimate experience, which is brave enough to hint at current questions on migration, race and power.
