Carolina Mendonça Zones of Resplendence
Zones of Resplendence is an investigation that explores the figure of the feminized warrior to imagine and rehearse what could be the preparation to a war fought with different weapons. A sci-fi speculation that engages with different body practices as a way to prepare an imaginary army.
Carolina Mendonça is interested in the contamination of knowledge and in being vulnerable to different logics. 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 dramaturg in collaboration with Marcelo Evelin, Marcela Santander, Dudu Quintanilha and Carolina Bianchi among others.
Lara's practice focuses on performance and writing as activators that generate states of empathy, vulnerability and fragility in the body. Working from the commitment to think from affections and sensitive practices as a politics that enables dissimilar perceptive modes and builds other ways of relating to each other and to the environment.
