Viva Lourenção Viva! Venha participar neste sábado às 19h30, numa noite de dança, percussão, vídeo, música e poesia dedicada à defesa dos Pedrais do Lourenção que protegem nosso Rio Tocantins, antes de embarcarmos para China e Nova Zelândia!
On 5 November 2015, the worst mining disaster in recorded human history assassinated the River Doce in Mariana, Minas Gerais. when a dam built and operated by the mining giants Samarco and Vale burst. The toxic debri has now reached the Atlantic ocean in north-eastern Brazil. The Amazon – lungs and saliva of the world – risks the same fate.
In solidarity with the people of Mariana and all communities affected by this human- ecological disaster and all similar disasters caused by the ‘development of greed’, and as a contribution to the global movement for solar energy, a living Amazon and a sustainable future, we created the dance-theatre ‘Life-Source on Fire’.
Here are 15 images from its opening on December 19, performed by the young dancer-choreographer Camylla Alves, conceived and directed by Dan Baron Cohen in collaboration with our Rivers of Meeting project, in the Brazilian Amazonian community of Cabelo Seco, Marabá, Pará.
The River Tocantins where we live and work has been damned to be transformed into an industrial highway in 2016, serving a new hydro-electric dam.
