  • Please note

    The piece contains nudity.

Jussara Belchior refers to herself as a ‘bailarina gorda’, a fat ballerina. In her black skin-tight dress she lets us take part in exploring the possibilities and impossibilities of her flesh. Her gaze meets that of the audience, reassuringly, challengingly, seductively – a dialogue about weight, desire, beauty and control begins. What sort of bodies should be allowed to dance? The emerging artist Jussara Belchior presents her very first own piece Peso Bruto (Gross Weight) in her European premiere at this year’s Wiener Festwochen. Formerly a dancer with the Brazilian Grupo Cena 11, she felt it was time for her to address her own body. The result is a solo performance as humorous as it is pared back, and as sensuous as it is sensitive. Belchior confronts head-on the way society regiments her physique, giving rise to an activism that stands up to normalisation and body shaming. And this dancing body rocks!
