The group will host a series of workshops on and off campus. Additionally, they will perform the following pieces:
The Group entitled Cor do Brasil (The Color of Brazil) will present a Forum Theater piece called “Suspect”. “Suspect” addresses institutional and diffuse racism, which, despite being present in the daily lives of Black men and women, produces concrete consequences for racial inequality in the country. This racial inequality often remains imperceptible because it is camouflaged in a mixture of discourses of camaraderie and meritocracy.
Collective Madalena Anastácia. Among its Forum Theater pieces, the Collective’s most recent is entitled “What is her place?” This question sets the tone of the piece in which social positions of power, which are pre-established and ratified by socio-cultural dynamics, are questioned by Black women. The piece works through the contradictory nature of the social advancement of Black women, who, while climbing the social ladder, are forced to get rid of their attachment to Black identity.
“Gêneres” is the most recent Theater-Forum show that explores how the persistent use of the gender binary can affect social advancements and promote intolerance and violence in everyday life.
