  2. Strictly No Elephants is a piece that talks about perception as a portal, a gateway leading in and out of meaning.
     
    We perceive "reality" according to the kind of dialogue we establish with it: thus, our perception is informed by reality just as much as it is informed by our perception. Meaning, then, is constructed in reciprocity - it is a two-way street.

    In this show's context, the subjective way in which we perceive our world is posited as an empowering tool for coping with reality.

    Strictly no elephants means limiting access and denying freedom of movement to an animal that serves as a means of transportation in India; the same animal, however, would wreak incredible havoc on the roads of other countries.

    In this piece, Strictly no elephants means forbidding the perception that focuses on obstacles and limitations, casting doubt on our capacity to deal with adversity.

    Within this framework, forbidding elephants means setting our hopes on self-perception and our perception of the world around us as a force that engenders reality and informs it with new meaning.

Clébio Oliveira

Clébio Oliveira was born in Natal, North-East of Brazil. He lived in Rio de Janeiro between 1998 and 2007. Clébio is a choreographer and a contemporary dance teacher graduated by the dance university, UniverCidade da Cidade, in Rio de Janeiro.

In 2006 he was awarded as “The Best Choreographer in 2006 ” by Jornal do Brasil, one of the most important newspapers in Rio de Janeiro, with the work “All We Keep Waiting For…”, a contemporary dance piece with Brazilian regional music. Since he started to develop his work as a choreographer Clébio won more than fifth prizes as best choreographer and dancer in different festivals in Brazil.
Invited by the Ballet Theatre Kiel (Germany), Clébio staged, in January 2009”Something is ending, something is beginning”. This piece was pointed out by Tantznetz.de as “the most innovating and most interesting piece of the night, and the only work with a particular body language”. (Lena Zieker)

In his choreographic language Clébio proposes a dialogue between the traditional Brazilian culture in association with contemporary dance elements, which makes his work to present something unique, sophisticated and aesthetically diversified. In his choreographic work Clébio explores the complexity and potentiality of the body, alternating strength, investigation, poetry and sensibility. This diversification generates a particular aesthetic, which mixes dance techniques, theater and folk culture. As a choreographer, he created pieces for many companies in Brazil and Europe.

He also danced, during four years, for Deborah Colker’s Dance Company and three years for Cie. Toulas Limnaios. With these Companies, he danced at the most important Festivals and tournées through Europe, Asia and South America.

Clébio has been living in Berlin and working in Germany since 2008. He is still working part times in Brazil.
