Thesis title
How long have we not been here? a writing about black theatrical practices

FCT reference

This project aims to investigate the practice of contemporary black artists, understanding theater as a cultural factor corresponding to the historical and social context in which it manifests itself. Artistic practices necessary at this time of political anachronisms that effect the exclusion of citizenship and encourage the precariousness of life. Scenes performed in the articulations of decolonial thought, from the politics of the body and the arts as fields of identity experimentation.
