Description

A study on what it means to be Black in Brazil. Specifically, it investigates what is to be a black artist in Brazil today. Questions and attempted answers permeated the construction of this performance essay. How can we discuss racial issues based on unique experiences? How can we turn theory into scene? From readings of works by Fred Moten, Achille Mbembe, bell hooks, Grada Kilomba, Frantz Fanon, Sueli Carneiro, Mano Brown and Aimé Césaire, amongst others, we explore these questions and attempt to place and displace racism in its roots.
