Performance premiered september 3, 2020, at Teatro Nacional D. Maria II.

Aurora Negra emerges from an awareness that black bodies are liable to become invisible in the performing arts. On stage, three women explore the roots of their cultures, celebrating their legacy and planning a pathway where they can affirm themselves the protagonists of their stories.
