Following an avant-premiere at Teatro Nacional D. Maria II during the 2021 Alkantara Festival, Atlas da Boca by Gaya de Medeiros will premiere this summer at Espaço Alkantara.


In Atlas of the Mouth, two trans bodies investigate the mouth as a place of many intersections: words, identity, and voice; public and private; eroticism and politics. The performance seeks to contribute new narratives, exploring entries that are created from the mouth out and understood from the mouth in.


Join us for a conversation with the artists and invited guests after each performance (in Portuguese).
