Cassi Abranches uses the body memories and the impulses of the soundtrack composed by Marcelo Jeneci and Zé Nigro to create GEN. "The work highlights my switching of being on stage to become a choreographer. I still have the physical references from the period of time I was a dancer of Grupo Corpo, although I search for my own references in each creation. I invited for the creative process people of my generation to start a new time. It's about start, beginning and resumption", says the choreographer.
"In Gen, choreographer Cassi Abranches uses the stage in a very clever way and demonstrates accuracy into the dramaturgical direction of the work, with a balance ensemble with solos, duos and quartets, all very well lineated and highlighted in the way the dancers move around the stage, in strictness jumps and circularity in the design of the movements”.
