Synopsis

Taking its title from the name of a Frevo step that pretends a moment of imbalance, Set To Go portrays four dancers in their ways of articulating a form of popular tradition with gender and socio-economic issues. As a series of annotations on the relation between body, camera and movement in the documentation of a typical dance of the Northeast of Brazil, the film comments on the meaning of the carnivalesque used in diverse strategies of preservation of Frevo as an image, heritage and product.
