NERVURE is a solo project that was first called "Good by Pavlova". It started off with idea of departure/fall of a fake Icon/Icon to be, Pavlova, the clown? The character I longed to give life to. Not able to letting go, she deals with feelings of restlessness.
NERVURE is a very acclaimed solo work, which won two prizes at SOLOCOREOGRAFICO Dance Show case in Torino, Italy, in 2017, and was therefore invited to be presented in the Frankfurt Edition and in Lyon. NERVURE has won Best Performance award Copenhagen International Choreography Competition
NERVURE has been invited to the Lucky Trimmer Festival at Sophiensaelle in Berlin, to TanzOFFensive Festival at Commedia Futura, in Hannover and to DanceWaves Festival in Cyprus.
NERVURE will continue touring to Taiwan and Malasya in 2019.

choreography, concept, stage and costumes: Liliana Barros
performance: Liliana Barros
" Among the more experienced choreographers is Liliana Barros, who now offers a solo, following her successful large-group choreography "My name is Legion". "Nervure" is a force. A performance as distinguished as the dancer. On red highheels, in silver leggings and with a pretty free upper body, she gives the nerve bundle, a tangojunkie that vibrates to the rhythm of electro-tango alternately, vibrates, fights wildly and pines for "more". Almost only on the spot, the Barros makes every muscle twitch, every facial expression into an experience in this minimalistic choreography. Half-clown, half tragic figure, she does not need any decor to appear like the central star of a cosmos."
