A performative installation created from the testimony of the Xingu River over the Belo Monte dam. In this beautiful show, the audience immerses themselves in stories in which everyone speaks through the same techno-shamanic device. Each speaker carries a voice, human and non-human, forming a polyphony of beings, languages, sounds and perspectives of the Xingu River that take the space to open the public's hearing to voices that so many try to silence. It is from these sounds, songs and also images that the incredible creator and performer Gabriela Carneiro da Cunha articulates along the audience the different moments of the work and presents the different perspectives of the beings who protect the waters and forests and who take over the word to mythologize its history.

Thus, the Belo Monte Dam is no longer simply a work to become the myth of the enemy.
