Trigger warning: nudity and references to violence

Carolina Mendonça is interested in the contamination of knowledge and vulnerability to different dynamics. Carolina holds a Master in Choreography and Performance from Giessen University in Germany and Graduated in Performing Arts at ECA-USP. She works as a dramaturge in collaboration with Marcelo Evelin, Marcela Santander, Dudu Quintanilha and Carolina Bianchi, among others.

Lara Ferrari's practice focuses on performance and writing as activators to generate states of empathy, vulnerability and fragility in the body. She is committed to depart from affect and sensibility as political agents, enabling dissimilar perceptive modes and building other ways of relating to each other and the environment.
