This reunion is a continuation of a dialogue that began during BP.15, in an attempt to rethink the connection between art and education. In this sense, the purpose is to discuss performance as a vehicle for education, considering that performance practices aim at destabilizing thinking patterns consolidated by conventional learning. It is also an invitation to reflect upon why we no longer think the same way, yet we are still the same human beings.
Type of activity: Conversation with the audience. Dialogue
