Trece Gestos de un Cuerpo. Olga Roriz 1987

Olga Roriz
  • Choreography: Olga Roriz
  • Music: Antonio Emiliano
  • Sets and Costumes: Nuno Carinhas
  • Light Design: Orlando Worm
  • World premiered by the Gulbenkian Ballet at the Gulbenkian Hall, Lisbon, May 25th, 1987.
  • Premiered by Compañía Nacional de Danza at the Albéniz Theatre, Madrid, April 3rd, 1992.

The music for this choreography was composed at the request of the Musical Service of the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation and was the result of close collaboration between the choreographer and the composer. The music was composed prior to the choreography but they are intrinsically joined, so that a part of the narrative visual structure underlies and precedes the music.

Both music and choreography were based on a text (prepared by the choreographer) in which characters and situations were defined. The music is like the soundtrack of a short film which works as a mechanism reminiscent of feelings, and a fictitious memory of states of mind.

OLGA RORIZ BIOGRAPHY

CND ARCHIVE REPERTOIRE 90/11. GUEST CHOREOGRAPHERS

Portrait de Olga RorizOlga Roriz began her studies at the National Theatre School of San Carlos with Ana Ivanova and David Boswell. She continued her studies of dance at the Official National School with Julia Cross, Patrick Hurde and Elisa Worm. She also learnt contemporary dance with Joana Woodbury and Vasco Wellekamp. Among the choreographers who have most influenced her are Christopher Bruce, Lar Lubovithc and Louis Falco.

In 1983, she received a scholarship from the Gulbenkian Foundation, and could therefore take part in a course for composers and choreographers in Guildford directed by Alvin Nikolais. In 1978 she began to create choreographies in the Choreography Studio of the Gulbenkian Ballet, for which she created five works in consecutive years.

At present she works at the Gulbenkian Ballet as Main Choreographer and First Dancer. She has created fifteen choreographies for the repertoire of this company, amongst others: Three Songs (Nina Hagen 1985), Empty Space (A. Emiliano, 1987), Thirteen gestures of a body (A. Emiliano, 1989), Isolda (R. Wagner, 1990), and so on. She has also created choreographies for National Company of Bailado, Dança Groupand Grands Ballets du Monaco. She received the First Prize in Choreography of the Dance Meeting of Osaka. Her repertoire includes soloist roles in the following choreographies created by her: Travessia, Winter Garden, In Fracçoes and Situaçoes Goldberg.

She has collaborated in the staging of operas and plays directed by Joao Loureano, Carlos Aviles, Ricardo Paris and Joao Perry. She has also directed several seminars at the Main School of Dance and the Academy of Dance in Setúbal.
