Inspired by the photographs of Otto Dix and images of the 50's, Rafael Gomes created Bingo!. "The work is a clandestine casino that reveals different characters and situations, such as a woman dressed up and a couple in a fight, violence and forbidden sex. The dancers are part of the game of bingo that are randomly chosen," says the choreographer. At the sound of rock, jazz and funk played by timpani remixed by Hisato, neon lights created by Kleber Matheus and the ambience of Wagner Freire creates different sensations that overpass the play.
"Bingo! is a work that combines accuracy, speed and lyricism, with a completely pure and peculiar energy. What is most precious in the piece created by Rafael Gomes is take to the stage a force as inherent to life, tangible and real and that rarely comes as pure and raw to the stage”.
