To celebrate the 25th anniversary of Companhia Olga Roriz, Henrique Pina documented the four months of preparation for the creation of “Autopsy”. This documentary film unveils the process of building a choreographic language, the genesis of the first ideas until establishing, through choreography, a meaning, a narrative, a concept.
A look at the creative process of Olga Roriz's work, “Autopsy”, and the construction process of a choreographic language in a documentary by director Henrique Pina.
The audience is led along this journey, following the elements that embody this process, over four months of rehearsals and preparations. There is a strong connection between the choreographer and her interpreters, this unique aspect in Olga Roriz's way of working, so evident in this work, is the basis for several sequences explored in the documentary, from improvisation works to dialogues between the performers and the choreographer about concepts that assume a fundamental presence in their lives.
