Preto Amparo’s solo proposes the decolonization of the look towards the black body. His performance zooms in on the trajectory of a young black man in society - directly affected by police brutality, mass arrests, the incessant genocide of black people and the hypersexualisation of the black body - in a mix with urban elements and contemporary rites of passage. 

violento. is an immersion into what blackness, in dialogue with contemporary society, is all about. The Brazilian colonial historical process equated blackness with expressions of violence. The performance, in turn, appropriates violence as an aesthetic and creative tool, to erase, pierce and reconfigure this way of thinking. Offering a dialogue between the ancestry and the life of the young urban black, the performer bears an experience that seeks new chances for thinking about black aesthetics in the scenic, artistic and cultural domains.
