Through a mixture of talk and workshop, Luciane will discuss creative proposals of Brazilian women artists, whose reflections point to understand dance and performance as areas of production of knowledge in light of the political and social urgencies of our times. Among the topics that these women artists deal with are women incarceration, self-care and healing and the condition of nonnormative bodies.

Light refreshments will be served. Free and open to the public.
