Zbog krijumčarskih ruta saveznu državu Pará u sjevernom Brazilu što se tiče glazbe možemo opisati kao amazonsku i karipsku. U '50-im godinama brodovi koji su nosili parfeme i viski donijeli su sa sobom i merengu, salsu te zvuk gramofonskih ploča. Šezdeset godina kasnije utjecaj karipskih zvukova učino je da Paraense glazba počne prodirati u Tecnobregu - glazbeni žanr stvoren prisvajanjem i izmjenama popularnih pjesama. Veliki sound sistemi koij danas ljuljaju Tecnobrega proslave, pedesetih su se svali «picarpes» i bili su to tada mali pokretni zvučnici čiji je nadimak bio «željezna usta». Naše polazište je riječ „Belém" – mjesto na kojem nema zabune, kaosa, buke i galame. Paklena plesna rapsodija koja ne pokazuje poštovanje, zaigrana je, provokativna, nepristojna, bijesna, lukava i senzualna. Ples u kojem tijela zrače, pun kontradikcija i dvosmislenosti, dobra i zla - to je sve ljudsko tijelo. Što kažete na mega zvuk, strojnicu, stereo ples, tijelu kao plovilu koje skida svoj identitet te se trese i drhti žestoko?


Marcela Levi studirala je na plesnoj školi Angel Vianna te se dodatno educirala na umjetničkim rezidencijama u Les Recollets Art Center, programu Casa Encendida/Aula de Danza i Urban Creativity ON.OFF - Guimarães 2012. Gostovala je u programu Rio Occupation na London Cultural Olympiad te bila dobitnica stipendije Batiscafo. Njezini projekti su predstavljeni na raznim festivalima i umjetničkim centrima u Brazilu, Europi i Latinskoj Americi. Surađivala je i s Liom Rodrigues, Verom Mantero, Gustavom Ciriacom i Guillermom Gomezom-Peñom.

Lucía Russo studirala je psihologiju na Sveučilištu u Buenos Airesu i ples na EDDC-u i na Centro Cultural Rojas. Koordinira projekt Dijalozi u suradnji s Red Sudamericana de Danza. Surađivala je s De la Guardiom, Diegom Gilom, Lucasom Condróm Gustavom Ciriacom, Nataliom Tencer i Ayarom Hernandez. Koreografkinje Marcela Levi i Lucía Russo osnovale su Improvável Produções u Rio de Janeiru 2010. U svom radu, Levi & Russo oslanjaju se na zajedničko autorstvo projekata koji, u umjetničkom smjeru, ukazuju na otvoreni pristup kojim se različite inventivne pozicije sijeku tijekom procesa koji obuhvaća devijantne linije, nezadovoljstva i unutarnje razlike kao konstruktivne kritičke sile, a ne kao kontradiktorni polariteti.

Musically, the state of Pará - in northern Brazil - is an Amazonian Caribbean formed thanks to smuggling routes. In the fifties ships carrying perfumes and whiskeys also carried merengue, salsa and zouk vinyl records. Sixty years later the influence of the Caribbean sounds made the Paraense music pour into the Tecnobrega – a musical genre created by appropriation and alteration of popular songs. The Sound Systems, powerful sound structures that today lull the Tecnobrega celebrations, began in handcarts that in the fifties were called ‘picarpes’ and the sound projector was nicknamed ‘iron mouth’. Our starting point landscape is the word “Belém": place where there is confusion, chaos, noise and clatter. An infernal dance-rhapsody, irreverent, playful, provocative, indecent, furious, cunning and sensual. A dance emanated by a body laden with others, of contradictions, ambiguities, goods and evils, that is, a human body, of people. How about a solo mega sound, a revolving machine-gun, a dance-stereo, a body-vessel that takes off its identity and shakes and trembles furiously?


Marcela Levi was trained by the Angel Vianna Dance School and was a resident artist at the Les Recollets Art Centre; in the Artists in Residence Program - Casa Encendida/Aula de Danza; in the Laboratory of Urban Creativity ON.OFF - Guimarães 2012; guest artist on the Rio Occupation program at the London Cultural Olympiad; and received the Batiscafo scholarship. Her projects have been presented at various festivals and art centres in Brazil, Europe and Latin America. Levi collaborated with Lia Rodrigues, Vera Mantero, Gustavo Ciríaco and Guillermo Gomez-Peña, among others.

Lucía Russo studied Psychology at the University of Buenos Aires and dance at EDDC and Centro Cultural Rojas. She coordinated the Dialogues project in partnership with the Red Sudamericana de Danza. Russo collaborated with De la Guarda, Diego Gil, Lucas Condró, Gustavo Ciríaco, Natalia Tencer and Ayara Hernández, among others. Choreographer Marcela Levi and Lucía Russo founded Improvável Produções in Rio de Janeiro in 2010. Levi & Russo rely on a shared authorship project in an artistic direction that points to an open-minded regime in which different inventive positions intersect in a process that embraces deviant lines, dissent and internal differences as a constructive critical force and not as contradictory and self-excluding polarities.
