IN PERFORMANCE

2020 - João Pessoa, Brazil

Sonata para a Mulher Azul

Synopsis: The "Mulher Azul" (blue woman) is the woman who crosses the timeline between generations of women in my maternal family. It is the woman who is born from clay, in northeastern's arid soil, and who continuously resists adversity.

Much like powerful pollens, she sales through streams and rivers, breezes and gales and then flows into the sea.  A brine of affections.

Filmmaking: Lorena Barlavento

2019 - Bräsen, Germany

2012 - Marrakech, Morroco

Performance OUI

Performance in collaboration with the Moroccan artist Driss Maarouf

Synopsis: An encounter between two distant worlds, two external and internal realities, two distinct cultural universes, and many expectations. The artwork takes place between what is not said, named or signified. It's a live and breathing construction. Being and breathing together. Discovering yourself both in front and inside of another.

Collaboration:  Union Marrocaine des Arts Dramatique
