Entered in the dance world with hip-hop, dancer for the compagny of Maguy Marin, Leïla Ka faces, in Pode Ser, the stage alone, carried in a kind of struggle – against both herself and summons – that will not end.
Obeying to a singular syntax of hip-hop, Pode Ser talks about limits, aspirations, emancipation of a body but also disarray. Maybe the disarray of being in the world and of only being oneself.
The choreographer and dancer faces the stage in a solitary struggle against herself and the call to be there. Pode Ser, (‘maybe’ in Portuguese) is an undefinable dance born of multiple influences that explores and reveal the many “I”s ; the real, experienced one and the ideal beings that make up a person.
