BAQUE - Contorno do Gosto

Gaya de Medeiros

  • 08.07 — 10.07 2022
  • Artists in Residence
  • Espaço Alkantara
  • ages 12+

At Espaço Alkantara, Gaya de Medeiros begins work on a new project, Baque — Contorno do Gosto. On 31 July, we open the doors of the studio for a public sharing of the process.

In Baque — Contorno do Gosto, a collective of trans bodies creates a ritual of affect and fables, a utopia where gender, race, and other differentiating markers no longer longer exist. The collective proposes to (re)narrate the world and the relationships that connect them with existence, the things that thrill them in life and those that quash those thrills. This is a concert-performance that seeks to answer the question: if my body didn’t always arrive before me, what would I talk about?
