A session between fire and forest, activating tools of speculative fiction, reading and writing practices, and voices from multispecies anthropology.

The final day of the Terra Batida programme and the close of the Free Reforest School sees a collaboration between Helen Torres, an Argentinian activist and storyteller based in Barcelona who is also the translator of the work of Donna Haraway in Spain, and Zoy Anastassakis, a Brazilian designer-anthropologist based in Lisbon, who coordinates a programme of independent “humusity” studies.

Considering Donna Haraway when she reminds us that “the material semiotics of fire in our times are at stake” (2016), how can we imagine the multiple, tangled relations between fire and the forest, as a game of disturbances, contaminations, ruins and resurgences, and the friction between them? To face this problem, we propose a number of experiments of diffraction, fabulation and speculation. From these speculative gestures, we look to provoke collectively a debate about the relations between fire and forest.

CONFERÊNCIA - 'O que nos contam as florestas em chamas? Histórias de ruínas e ressurgências em fricção.' com Helen Torres e Zoy Anastassakis, e moderação de Rita Natálio.

ENTRADA GRATUÍTA MEDIANTE LEVANTAMENTO DE BILHETE

Os bilhetes para as conferências estarão disponíveis online em teatrosaoluiz.byblueticket.pt (50% da lotação) na véspera e na bilheteira do Teatro (restante 50% da lotação) no próprio dia, a partir das 15h, até 2 por pessoa.


Retomando conceitos e debates lançados por Anna Tsing e Donna Haraway, nesta palestra pensaremos com as histórias de florestas em chamas sobre ruínas e ressurgências em fricção. Brincando com um jogo de palavras recorrentes nas obras das duas autoras, observaremos os distúrbios causados pelos seres humanos queimadores de fósseis, mas, também, o que está em jogo na semiótica material do fogo para além do “Burning Man”.
