THE PROPOSAL USES ONE OF THE GREATEST OUTDOOR SHOWS AS A BACKGROUND: CARNIVAL. SAMBA EXPOSES A BODY DIVIDED AND IMMERSED IN THIS CONTRADICTORY CONTEXT. THE "PARTY BODY" THAT CO-EXISTS IN THE "RESILIENT BODY" AND VICE-VERSA. THE DIVIDED BODY IS ALSO THE CONSTANT NEGOTIATION BETWEEN THE PHYSICAL AND MEMORY ARCHIVES AND THE TENSION BETWEEN TRADITION AND THE TRANSATLANTIC. SAMBA IS A FRACTURED WORK FULL OF EDGES. IT IS A SPRINGBOARD THAT PUTS SOME BELIEFS INTO CRISIS AND ALSO THE ACCEPTANCE OF WHAT CONSTITUTES US. APPROPRIATE THE CONCEPT OF "GLOCAL", SAMBA CROSSES THE LOCAL AND INDENTITARY TO MAKE THE GLOBAL EMERGE. FLESH, BODY, MIGRATION, QUEER, POLITICS, GENDER, VIOLENCE... SAMBA PLAYS WITH THE COLLECTIVE IMAGINARY AND THE PARALLELISM OF A LIBERAL PARTY FULL OF CONTRADICTIONS. Credits and datasheet
