A última negra (The last black woman)

A Última Negra – digital spectacle of the Gompa Project - RS

10/25, 8pm

What would you do if you woke up being the only survivor of a massacre? What would you do if your memories were erased? In a first world Brazil, the discovery of a black woman frozen for 100 years rekindles the discussion about the structural racism that exists in the country. An archaeological artifact? A victim of the system? Or just a woman trying to retrieve her stolen stories? Who is the Last Black?

The virtual show entitled A ÚLTIMA NEGRA, part of a questioning of the Gaucho actress Hayline Vitória in face of Pedro Bertoldi's dramaturgical provocations about what it would be like to be the last black person in Brazil. In the text by the playwright from Rio Grande do Sul, 100 years after the fire at the National Museum, an archaeologist finds the body of a frozen black woman. Inexplicably, Dandara survived more than a century below zero degrees and its survival in a Brazil where for many years there are no traces of black people, rekindles discussions about institutional racism in the country.
