Four artists map on stage the movement of a group of women who, driven by memory, decide to change the order of things and prospect other forms and senses. To them, the established and delimited space is not stronger than the ancestral speed of imagination.
The work is driven by the black feminism premise, which observes that darkness must be embraced, and that mystery is the grounds and strength for contestation. Questions, frictions, and joys are created in a collective pulse, exploring the endless possibilities for a narrative play of the story.
From São Paulo and with a transdisciplinary education, a scholar of the arts of the body, anthropology, and education, Luciane Ramos-Silva conceives, directs, co-acts, and reflects on the cross-roads of the Afro-diasporic perspectives, historical and social movements arising from the displacement of people and knowledge from the African continent to the Americas and their contemporary multiplicities.
This creation was part of the collective exhibition Histórias Afro-Atlânticas [Afro-Atlantic Stories) (Masp/Instituto Tomie Ohtake), from 2018 and was adjusted for a version without an audience due to the pandemic’s setbacks.
