Fonseca, D. J. (2021). Por uma etnocaminhada em criação: modos de compor outras grafias festivas espetaculares
The paper Por uma etnocaminhada em criação: modos de compor outras grafias festivas espetaculares (For an ethnohiking in creation: modes of compose other spectacular festive graphies), written by Danielle de Jesus de Souza Fonsêca “aims to promote a dialogue about the poetics of the walking body present at the Feast of St. Martial or Oxen Gathering, as is also known the festivity that happens annually on the 30th day of June, in the neighborhood of João Paulo, in São Luís – MA. The displacement, in spite of having a straight route, characteristic of the festive configuration of the neighborhood, has a great deal of inventive, poetic, dramatic and imagetic curves and crossroads, (de)mobilizing various symbolic territories, which will be highlighted in this etnoscenological walk. We intend to raise the discussion on how the walk reinvents ways to create existences, especially regarding the way the bodies experience the city and trespass its dense and tense layers, turning the festive landscape into a place for exchange and nomadic creation”.
