Performance premiered september 3, 2020, at Teatro Nacional D. Maria II.
A show that is born from the realization of the invisibility black bodies are subjected in the performing arts. In Aurora Negra, the song begins in the voice of a woman who speaks. She speaks Creole. She speaks Tchokwe. She speaks Portuguese. Then, on stage, three women also speak these three languages from their position as foreigners. In each woman, an essence, personality and trajectory intersect with the certainty that nothing will ever be the same again. In this Aurora Negra, they search for the deepest roots of their cultures, celebrating their legacy and projecting a path where they assert themselves as protagonists of their own stories.

This show is part of the Feminist Futures Festival. More information, here.
