Dance Figures

Dancer has many stories and to reveal just some of these, SPCD created the documentary series Figuras da Dança, which brings you the art as told by those who lived it. The series currently has 33 episodes: Ismael Guiser (1927-2008), Ivonice Satie (1950- 2008), Ady Addor, Marilena Ansaldi, Penha de Souza, Ruth Rachou, Luis Arrieta, Hulda Bittencourt, Tatiana Leskova, Angel Vianna, Antonio Carlos Cardoso, Carlos Moraes (1936-2015), Décio Otero, Márcia Haydé, Sônia Mota, Ana Botafogo, Célia Gouvêa, Lia Robatto, Marilene Martins, Ismael Ivo, Edson Claro (1949-2013), Hugo Travers, J.C Violla, Cecília Kerche, Eva Schul, Janice Vieira, Eliana Caminada, Mara Borba, Jair Moraes (1946-2016), Paulo Pederneiras, Nora Esteves, Maria Pia Finocchio and José Possi Neto.

The programs are broadcast on channels Arte1 and Curta! (Brazilian TV Channels) The documentaries are available in a box of DVDs, accompanied by information booklets about each artist, with text researchers, historical photos and chronology. The Figuras da Dança series has not been marketed but is distributed to educational and cultural institutions, particularly those who rely on the public library, as well as universities and NGOs.
