Sentidos PrivadosDeprived meanings

Sentidos Privados is a performance conceived for the 5th edition of the collective feminist project All My Independent Women.
The 5th edition of All My Independent Women departed from an artistic reading of the book "Novas Cartas Portuguesas" (New Portuguese Letters). The book "Novas Cartas Portuguesas" was censored after its release by order of the Portuguese security agency that existed during the fascist regime of Estado Novo. The authors were arrested and brought to court, without successful conviction.

The performance played with the double meaning of the word “Privados” which in Portuguese can stand for privacy or deprivation. In this performance, multiple paragraphs of the book were collaged to form a text that pointed to the body as a place affected by language, arrested in the trajectory between utterance and meaning.

The performance was reformulated and presented again at the 6th AMIW at the VBKÖ in Vienna.
