Inês, the main character in the new solo of the same name by the Brazilian dancer Volmir Cordeiro is 57, has two children and lives in the favelas. Inês wishes for nothing better than to become a famous TV star but the price she has to pay for this quest for fame is huge. Cordeiro, who worked with choreographers like Lisa Rodrigues and Xavier Le Roy in the past, and who does the big in France, is fascinated by this woman and her craving for fame.
In this solo he wanted to completely embody Inês. For Cordeiro it is a pleasure to feel her joy, her doubt and shame and to show it to the audience. Whether Inês really exists or not is of less importance here. With his engaging and intense performance, Cordeiro makes you forget this question anyway.
