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).

Fóssil (Excerto)

No contexto do lançamento da plataforma Braba, Rita Natálio apresenta um excerto de 15 minutos da performance “Fóssil”, um trabalho de 2020 que integra uma série de performances-conferência em torno das relações entre linguagem e geologia, como “Antropocenas”/2017 (colaboração com João dos Santos Martins) e “Geofagia”/2018.


Se a figura do zombie foi central para entender o funcionamento do capitalismo e do conceito de biopolítica no século XX, a figura do fóssil – o que é extraído da terra e o que acumula tempo ou história – convida hoje a pensar sobre a crise generalizada que muites têm chamado de Antropoceno. Aqui se constrói um fóssil do extrativismo contemporâneo, refletindo sobre como a geologia e os processos que ocorrem “dentro da terra” estão inscritos e se inscrevem na história humana. Um livro-performance onde a linguagem atravessa diferentes escalas e se expõe à sabotagem.
