A look shared by two people, each one wishing the other to make the move to make something happen, however, none of them works. This is the meaning of Mamihlapinatapai, word originated from the indigenous language Yaphank, from a tribe of Tierra del Fuego, which the work of Jomar Mesquita is named after. "In choreography, we work with the relationship of desire between men and women and, at the same time, with this 'thing' added to the meaning of this word and of course, this desire is not achieved", the choreographer explains, who used deconstructed elements of ballroom dance to create this play. Mesquita is director of Limulus Dance Company, from Belo Horizonte.
