Um Redemoinho


  • Julie Dind Brown University, Providence, Rhode Island, EUA,



Neste artigo, tomo o termo ecoperformance como uma palavra 'arejada' e o correlaciono às noções de deficiência e neurodivergência, vistas como ventos poderosos de mudança, tais como formas de estar no mundo que oferecem espaço para aspirar-se ao mais-que-humano. Primeiramente, escuto os ecos e ressonâncias entre ecoperformance e formas autistas de estar no mundo, para então considerar como os estudos sobre deficiência podem contribuir com os da ecoperformance.

Biografia do Autor

Julie Dind, Brown University, Providence, Rhode Island, EUA,

Julie Dind is a PhD candidate in Theatre Arts and Performance Studies at Brown University, a butoh dancer and an interdisciplinary artist. She is obsessed with obsession and the performance of the non-normative social body. Her dissertation, provisionally titled “A(u/r)tistic Wor(l)ding” explores autistic modes of performance. Her artistic practice deals with what Fernand Deligny described as the “place that is not the place of saying,” art outside the boundaries of (neurotypical) language. Since 2012, she has collaborated with her a(u/r)tistic partner Rolf Gerstlauer on a multidisciplinary art project titled “Drawing NN inside butoh.”
