Bárbara Luci Carvalho
CORPUS MUNDI is an autobiographical story that overcomes geographies and aesthetic barriers in flowing movements between dance and theatre. It is a performative experience report of an afro-descendant female body that transforms personal experiences into a public performance.
“The door is open… I hear the voice of my ancestors saying: ‘Don’t forget that you care about the genes of this world and create life in a body that is constantly challenged to break through social constructions. You have only just begun to create your own history…'”
