‘Deixa arder’ (Let it burn) is an expression in Portuguese that means, at the same time, ‘let everything explode’ and ‘let it go through you, burn you, penetrate you’. In a very close relationship with the spectators, a Tamires Costa’s furiously good-humoured dance dialogues with the language of stand-up, show off and music-hall. But this is subverted in an extremism of interpretation. The solo remixes Thelonious Monk, Dizzy Gillespie, Nina Simone, Michael Jackson, Valeska Gert, Josephine Baker among others.
