Full Schedule

In 2001, from the initiative of the participants of an optional subject at the PPGAS/USP, interested in exploring a series of issues beyond the disciplinary scope, Napedra was created. The subject was called Paradigms of Theater in Anthropology. We decided to deepen our studies in the interfaces of anthropology and performance, alternating studies of texts relevant to the anthropology of performance with experience in the field of performance events.

Coordinated by John C. Dawsey, Napedra arises from the meeting of anthropologists in search of knowledge produced in art workshops, with artists in search of knowledge associated with the anthropologists' craft. It is the first research center in anthropology and performance in Brazil.

Performance seismology. The Anthropology, Performance and Drama Nucleus (Napedra), whose acronym evokes a geological image, is born from the echoes of a seismological movement in the field of anthropology. It resonates with the sounds and noises of a “performative turn” in anthropology, which began in the 1970s, involving a significant number of researchers.

Between the arts and sciences, the concept of performance takes on varied, changing and hybrid forms. There is something unresolved in this concept that resists definitive formulations and disciplinary boundaries. From different fields of knowledge and artistic expression – theater, music, performing arts, anthropology, sociology, psychoanalysis, linguistics, decolonial studies, feminism, queer theory – the concept of performance is formulated.

Sesc Vila Mariana

Sesc - Social Service of Commerce invites for the opening of the exhibition Encontros Ameríndios.

Opening Online Event
July 31, 2021, 3 pm, via youtube.com/sescvilamariana channel

With Sylvia Caiuby Novaes (designer and coordinator of the exhibition project), Marina Herrero (indigenist) and Els Lagrou (researcher)
Mediation: Tatiana Amaral (Technical Assistant at Gepros - Studies and Social Programs Management at Sesc São Paulo)

Translated into LIBRAS

Sesc Vila Mariana presents the exhibition Encontros Ameríndios, from 7/31/21 to 2/13/22, coordinated by Sylvia Caiuby Novaes and curated by Aristoteles Barcelos Neto, with the proposal to explore dialogic possibilities based on the encounter among the arts of the Haida and Tahltan peoples (Canada), Guna (Panama), Shipibo Konibo (Peru) and Huni Kuin (Brazil).

The exhibition, including paintings, drawings, digital art, embroidery and wood carving, features works by the MAHKU Huni Kuin Collective, from the Alto Rio Jordão Indigenous Land, in Acre (Brazil); the artists Shipibo-Konibo Olinda Silvano, Wilma Maynas, Silvia Ripoca, Ronin Koshi Arias Silvano and Dora Inuma Ramírez from Alto Ucayali and the Cantagallo Community in Lima, Peru; by artists Guna Ana Bella Fernandez, Angelmira Owens Perez, Benilda Mores, Briseida Iglesias, Buna Bipi, Conciencia Grace Rodriguez, Dilma Gardel, Edita Lopez, Emilsy Fernandez, Flor Fernandez, Gilda Tejada, Lea Amelta Tejada, Lonilda Gonzalez, Lucre Tejada and Victoria Gonzalez of the Comarca Guna Yala in Panama; by artists Haida Gwaai Edenshaw and Jaalen Edenshaw of the Haida Gawaii Archipelago in Canada; and by artist Tahltan Alano Edzerza of Telegraph Creek also in Canada.

The choice of works is based on two paths, one being the in-depth curatorial study of the original peoples and their works, and the other, the intercultural translation of the ideas and motivations of their artists behind their productions, with the aim of bringing the the artists' individual creativity, the changes in their works over time, the thematic universe approached by each one, the plastic and aesthetic preferences and the philosophical and cosmological issues of the arts of these Amerindian peoples. The curatorial process was guided by the biographies and reflections of indigenous artists, having as one of the concerns the protagonism of their authors.
