AMÉFRICA - Part 2: The Retake


The show AMÉFRICA: In Three Acts by Coletivo Legítima Defesa consists in the poetic, therefore, political elaboration of black and Amerindian confluences and their social and historical unfoldings in Brazil .
The scenic dramaturgy is freely inspired by the concept of Amefricanity. The term Amefricanidad, coined by Lélia Gonzalez, a black Brazilian intellectual, refers to black and Amerindian knowledge and experiences in the American continent.
Black and indigenous trajectories in dialogue/confluence allow for the creation of alliances based on their own legacies, bringing to light narratives buried by colonial heritage.
