»Viaduto« is inspired by the concept of party. 2013 is marked by significant events in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. One of them is the demolition of one of its fundamental constructions, Elevado da Perimetral, a viaduct connecting major city parts with the periphery. Renan Martins investigates that moment in time, together with musician Frankão, to connect with the party as a tool for political resistance and as practice for collectivity.

Renan Martins (aka DJ Bamboo) is a Brazilian choreographer and dancer based in Heidelberg. In 2016 he created his very first full evening piece »Let Me Die In My Footsteps«, which was chosen by Aerowaves as one of the top works of 2016. Since then, he has been touring his pieces in Europe and Brazil. He has also been a performer for Anne Teresa de Keersmaeker, Alexandra Waierstall, Ceren Oran, and Daniel Linehan, amongst others. Since 2013 he is a member of Damaged Goods / Meg Stuart performing in ­»Violet«, »Atelier III«, »Projecting [Space]«, and most recently »CASCADE«.
