Synopsis

In the sports court of a public school, a group of dancers rehearse highly disciplined routines under the watchful eye of a choreographer. Tensions haunt personal desires as they are observed by rival troupes. Within the spirit of musicals and music videos, SWINGUERRA sets issues of gender, masculinity, race and power as backdrop for the bodies on screen and the traditions they share and shape. Taking its title from Swingueira, a popular dance movement in contemporary Brazil – with a play on the word guerra, meaning war, the film showcases predominantly nonbinary gender performers at a moment of significant political instability in the country. SWINGUERRA is currently being presented at the Brazilian Pavilion in the 58th Venice Biennale.
