Spillovers

  • Artists in Residence

Rita Natálio is working on new performance based on a critical reading of Monique Wittig and Sande Zeig's 1976 book, *Lesbian Peoples: Material for a Dictionary*.

She first engaged with the book in Water Carriers and Spillovers", written in the context of the Working Encounters organised by the Create to Connect Create to Impact network.

In 2020, a book was found in a well. This well, as many other of life’s cavities, was contaminated by superficial practices of intensive monoculture. Its water, having turned unsanitary, had then dried up for quite a long time. It was inside this hole, then, dried up yet viscerally imprinted by the memory of water, that a translation of *Lesbian peoples: Material for a Dictionary*, written in 1976 by Monique Wittig and Sande Zeig was found.

She returns now to this research at the Pro.Dance studio, with support from Alkantara.
