Passage, a one woman show by Bárbara Santos is about finding yourself crossing. About walking the path of memories of poorly told stories and hidden histories. About perceiving where the concrete and allegorical chains are lodged which perpetuate the imprisonment of the colonized body that shelters a subjugated soul. It is about recognizing and facing the cuffs present in the subjectivity of avoiding the full experience of your being. Ultimately, it is about going through the colonized body to discover and liberate the political body.


This production of Bárbara Santos is a result of an investigative aesthetic process exploring the conversion of the scenic body into a political body. The work incorporates elements of the ancestral and contemporary black dances and the creative paths of sound and rhythm from the Aesthetics of the Oppressed through a feminist perspective.
