BIOGRAPHY

 

Poliana Lima (Brazil, 1983) is a choreographer, dancer, and teacher living in Madrid.

Since childhood she wanted to dedicate herself to dance and continues to do so today. Dancing is a way to discuss the human conditions and the mysteries of our existence. As well as training in classical ballet and contemporary dance, Poliana holds a degree in Social Science from the Campinas State University in Brazil.

In 2011, she made her first short professional choreography, Palo En La Rueda/Stick in the Wheel. One year later, she collaborated with Lithuanian choreographer Ugne Dievaityte. Their collaboration resulted in the piece Es Como Ver Nubes/It’s Like Watching Clouds’ which was awarded the Audience Prize at the 26th Choreographic Contest of Madrid; second prize at the One Piece Contest, as well as first prize at the Vila Real Dance Festival in 2014. They also created Flesh, the piece with which she toured nationally and internationally, including to the Fringe Festival (Edinburgh), Spring Forward Aerowaves, el Mercat de Flors, El Dansa Valencia, the New Baltic Dance Festival, the Window of Dance (Madrid in Dance) as well as at the Korzo Theatre.

In 2013 she was invited to participate in the European ‘Performing Gender’ initiative, where she created Cuerpo-Trapo/Rag-Body’ for the Contemporary Arts Museum of Zagreb.

In 2014 she launched Atávico /Atavistic’, her first ensemble piece, which was awarded the First Prize at the 28th Choreographic Contest of Madrid, as well as the Audience’s Award, the Critics’ Award, the 2015 Dance Web Scholarship from Impulstanz Vienna, and a residency at Tanzhaus, Zurich. In 2016 she created a short work entitled, Las Cosas Se Mueven Pero Se Dicen Nada/ Things Move But They Do Not Say Anything. The following year she premiered her solo Hueco/ Hollow at the Teatros Canal, Madrid, and at the BAD Bilbao Festival.

From June 2018 she continued touring work internationally. She has been an Associate Artist at the Conde Duque Centre (Madrid) where she created and premiered 2 new works, Aqui, Siempre/ Here, Always and Las Cosas en la Distancia/ Things in the Distance.

Her latest full-length work Las Cosas Se Mueven Pero Se Dicen Nada/ Things Move But They Do Not Say Anything premiered in September 2020 at Teatros Canal and in 2021 has been programmed in Paris, Athens, Ljubljana, Rijeka. The work was selected for Aerowaves Twenty 21.

"Dance is my home, where I exist and where my identity rests. It is a peculiar identity, because its nature, far from being fixed, is in movement"

WORKSHOPS AND MEDIATION

Poliana Lima

WORKSHOPS AND MEDIATION

Seeing someone dance is the most direct way of seeing them in all their complexity. Dance engages with the intellectual, emotional and physical dimensions of a person. It also highlights their past, grounds them in their present and reveals their desires and their future expectations. To dance is a way to achieve a deep knowledge of life and about oneself.

I build my work as a teacher from the basis of this multidimensional nature of dance. Regardless of the format, the exercises are conceived and focused on affecting these different dimensions simultaneously. Guidance and corrections are guided by a wish to increase the integration and autonomy of the student: characteristic that seems fundamental to me in an artistic discipline. In general, in the pedagogical spaces that I promote, I offer, as well as the physical tools in order to dance, the mental and emotional tools to facilitate the learning process.

I am also aware of the collective nature of dance and of the responsibility that comes with guiding a group, and that is why I consider that creating and sustaining a favorable and safe environment to guarantee that the participants can unleash their full creative potential is a fundamental requirement. Within this framework, my pedagogical axes when leading groups are, on the one hand, to recognize each student in their individuality and integrity and, on the other hand, to build the support of the group, encouraging cooperation through the recognition and celebration of the differences between each one of its members.

A STICK IN THE WHEEL

 

Time that stops even though in movement.
Time, movement and body.
The choked on, that didn’t happen, that is repeated. Forces that pull forwards and backwards. Split body, so many directions and voices.
Where and how to go?
In the end, what path is that?

Atávico - versión corta

 

Atávico, sin intención de crear una narrativa, plantea una experiencia escénica conectada con las sensaciones de violencia y su repercusión en el cuerpo: los paisajes que, como fuerzas ocultas, nos hacen víctimas y verdugos a la vez.

En esta propuesta apostamos por los cuerpos “cotidianos”, fuera de los patrones estandarizados, con la firme voluntad de compartir la belleza del movimiento y la gestualidad cotidianas más allá de los cánones, así como la danza más allá del virtuosismo.

THINGS IN THE DISTANCE

 

LAS COSAS EN LA DISTANCIA (Things in the Distance) is a choreographic project created for public spaces and premiered at the Conde Duque Cultural Centre, Madrid in 2020. The performance was created via a series of workshops working with advanced contemporary female dance students.The choreography can be adapted for various public spaces and requires a minimum of 10 female dancers but is adaptable, depending on the size of the allocated performance space, for a large group of advanced contemporary dancers.

THINGS MOVE BUT THEY DO NOT SAY ANYTHING

 

Things Move But They Do Not Say Anything is a dance piece informed by ideas of permanence and persistence. The choreography is performed by a female cast of dancers. The sound score for the piece is entirely created by the live transmission and amplification of the sounds created through the dancer’s on-stage movements and physical presence throughout the performance. The piece draws upon the processes of transformation and repetition that are found in Nature, whilst avoiding any and all attempts at figurative representations of these phenomena.

Things Move But They Do Not Say Anything is a full-length choreographic work that is radically rooted in foregrounding the real-time, lived presence of the women themselves. These are resistant and insistent bodies in equal measure; these are bodies subjected to unpredictable, diverse, intense forces. These are female bodies drawing upon a shared heritage of being resilient and present in this turning world.

ATAVISTIC

 

Atávico, without the intention of creating a narrative, poses a scenic experience connected with the sensations of violence and their repercussion in the body: the landscapes that, as hidden forces, make us victims and executioners at the same time.

In this proposal we put our faith in "everyday" bodies, outside standard norm, with the determination to share the beauty of movement and gestures from daily life beyond the accepted canon, as well as dance that is beyond virtuosity.

HOLLOW

 

HUECO (Hollow) is a contemporary dance solo that explores the notion of identity, place and time, through the concept of journeying and through the interaction between movement and live music.

HUECO explores in real time the diverse dynamics and challenges of being present to oneself and to others. It’s in this ‘in-between’, liminal space that the true possibilities of being are first sensed, then lived in and through the body. This is a dancing body in which the traces of a Brazilian past overlap and intertwine with the present moment forging a way into a dynamic movement filled future. This is a space of perpetual motion and change.

At the heart of the work is a journey to find and know this space - a vertiginous void into which the dancer can throw herself and into which her dancing self provides a new grounded and living sense of self. The ‘Hollow’ of the title refers to this constant desire to open up a space for dance as an affirmation of being in the world in the here and now.

I really loved the work… she is totally compelling and intriguing, but also I thought the work was so rich and bursting with ideas and provocations. That was apparent also in the way it clearly touched that straight, middle class, middle aged audience, provoking such varied but altogether empathetically engaged responses. So that is great evidence that audiences want to be challenged and intrigued rather than the prevailing programming that tends towards being so safe and anxious to please. Also, what a pleasure to talk to an artist who talks so intelligently, confidently and accessibly about their work. That was a bonus for the audience after the performance - to get that insight and brilliant articulation of the practice.

Beth Cassani – choreographer and senior lecturer in performance and choreography, Leeds Beckett University (UK).

I found Poliana Lima’s performance ‘Hueco’ fascinating to watch. In parts it was like something from a David Lynch film…it was so interesting to watch someone so involved in the physicality of the movement and so present in what she was doing. It was quite captivating and unnerving at the same time.

Hannah Robertshaw, Programmes Manager, Yorkshire Dance, Leeds (UK).

Hueco seemed to speak to me about the gift/burden of what it means to be a human being and an artist…what it is to be in the process of creation, of being present, of having to express something when you don’t yet know what it is, but you can’t put it aside.

Wieke Eringa, CEO Yorkshire Dance, Leeds (UK).

In 60 years of watching contemporary dance and other dancers, I have never seen anything like this, and I have to say I found much of it difficult to watch… your personal integrity and honesty in this work is commendable…I really appreciated your conversation with us in the audience and your bravery at expressing your inner soul so authentically. Few performers would be that honest or sincere.

HERE, ALWAYS

AQUÍ, SIEMPRE is a dance-documentary work created in collaboration with the 4 participating dancers Carla de Diego, Christine Cloux, Irene Ducaju y Mona Belizan. The conceptual framework and choreography of the work was created by Poliana Lima who also acts as Creative Director of the project. The work takes as its starting point the detailed specificity of the lives and dance practices (historical and current) of the 4 dancers i.e. their individual autobiographical maps. The piece explores how those individuated experiences can cohere to celebrate a certain history of dance; a desire to create a shared language of dance; a desire to dance one’s own dance; an opportunity to reaffirm for performers and audiences alike the specificities of time and space through the interrelationship of movement, language and image; an opportunity to reflect on the inexorable passage of time and the intimate and deeply personal way that we relate to time. In short to show: FOUR HISTORIES, FOUR PLACES, FOUR TIMES, FOUR WOMEN: ONE EVENT

 

“This is a work that transcends you; that shakes you through time as age, time as rhythm, time as ritual. Poliana has managed to capture the subtleties of these four performers and manages to capture us in a perpetual present, one with which she connects only through the truth of dance. It is impossible not to be moved by the ancestral wisdom distilled by these four bodies: that for me is ‘Aquí, Siempre’.”

by Belen Santa-Olalla, Theatre Director and Creative Director of Stroke 114

“A magnificent and sensitive work evoking a sense of humanity, that takes the viewer into the most intimate parts of the creative process based on the essence of five women – the four performers and the choreographer.”

by Alba Iranzo, Environmental lawyer

“Present, past and future are constantly colliding in Aquí Siempre. It’s as if the desire of the piece was to think time completely holistically. Thinking of dance as what happens outside of time. Here, in this choreography, it always shows how desire, in relation to the body in motion, erases all temporal notions.”

by Lucas Condró, Choreographer and teacher and Creator of Asymmetrical Motion Company

“With Aquí Siempre, Poliana has managed not only to speak of four women, four ages and four lives but to speak about all of us - of herself and, therefore, also of me. In the work I am invited to reflect upon my doubts, my struggles, on the passage of time, in the desire to express myself and on the cathartic experience that comes out of each one of the performers. The overall impression I am left with after seeing this piece is that each of the performers collectively have woven an image where each one of them is the living mirror of the others.”

by Marta Lorrio Aguirre, Creative Advertising Executive

“It is a game of disturbing mirrors between the process of creation and the passage of time in the body of each the dancers. I was fascinated by the duplication of the bodies on screen, especially in the first section until they dance in silence. The screen images push us to imagine a parallel reality where those bodies on the stage continue to dance, remembering that wherever we are (real or virtual space) our stages are part of a great choreography!”

by Victor Moreno, Filmmaker and director of the film ‘La Ciudad Oculta’ (The Hidden City).
