  • Tchekhov and the writing of silence

A complement for the previous work: in this article I focus on the use of silence in The cherry orchard (written by Anton Tchekhov) and how it outlines the absence of tragic aspects in the author's universe.

  • Museum of Community Removals: (re)existance performance

The article presents a study about performativity in the “self reports” by analyzing a guided visit to the Museum of Community Removals at Vila Autódromo (community located in the neighborhood of Barra da Tijuca, in Rio de Janeiro/RJ). The museum was opened in 2016 after the removal of more than 700 families that used to live in this community (consequently reducing Vila Autódromo to an area of 70% inferior than its original one).

  • Self-projections

Continuing the research presented in the article Museum of Community Removals, this study consists on the analysis of the self-reports by the perspective of the human body. In the contemporaneity, our images are completely influenced by the viability to manipulate it. Thus, taking as example the performance work Omnipresence (by Orlan), I proposed an investigation on how the way we choose to present ourselves makes even more tenuous the boundaries of fiction.
