Theatro Municipal do Rio de Janeiro 2016

Music: Heitor Villa-Lobos
Costumes: Rene Salazar
Sets: Gringo cardia
Light design: Maneco Quinderé

“Choreographer Daniela Cardim changes the narrative slightly but keeps its essence, telling the story through a myriad of arm movements (alluding to the bird’s flight) and well articulated jumps. Using music from O Pássaro da Floresta and the symphonic poem Uirapuru itself, the choreography is charged with technical elements. "

"Tangents, by company manager and choreographer of growing repute Daniela Cardim Fonteyne to Mussorgsky's Pictures at an Exhibition was an abstract, lyrical journey centred around the changes in relationships, the differences in how people interact with each other. It was sensitively shaped, with a number of eye-catching sequences."

"An interesting choice of music in a finely constructed piece in the neo-classical style, it made wonderful use of movement in double work, solos and ensemble. Following a powerful men's section, it just got better and better"
