Body Manifest

A body narrative on the latest street protests in Rio de Janeiro for the “Passe Livre” (Free Fare). After the big marches in my city, my body was engraved with images that are impossible to translate into words. This performance is a catharsis of that experience. It is an open space to share the rage of this public body, made manifest.
