Alex in wasteland
Alex is an eight year old girl living in a developed country. As many girls of her age, she has a lot of toys and things to play with , but being a lonely child, she still gets bored on her own. For what she would really love is a pet, a real animal, not like the dozens of cuddly toys that she has.
At the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the premiere of “Sacre du Printemps” in Paris, in May 1913, Maria Clara Villa Lobos takes the challenge to give her own dance-theatre version of this historical and major piece of the dance repertory.

After the creation of “XL, because size does matter” (2000), “XL” (2002) and “M, une pièce moyenne” (2003), Maria Clara leads the exploration of the extremes and through our society by tackling the theme of obesity with this solo named “XXL, because big is beautiful”.
