Workshop by Iury Salustiano Trojaborg

Friday, Dec 2nd at 14.00 -18.00

Sunday, Dec 4th at 10.00-16.00

This workshop emerges as part of Iury Salustiano Trojaborg’s doctoral studies at Malmö Theatre Academy and Agenda 2030 Graduate School at Lund University.
Her artistic research project “On Ancestrality and Regeneration: Performing Decolonial Journeys” aims to investigate ways of using performance art as a regenerative and socio-political tool to provoke change in the understanding of the lives of immigrants who, like her, willingly travelled the old colonial routes back to the European countries that colonised theirs.
It aims to explore the process of construction of cultural identities in a performative setting according to the intersection of gender, sexuality, class and race, promoting in this way an active dialogue with the areas where this research will take place: Malmö (SE), Copenhagen (DK), Rio de Janeiro and Belém (BR).
The workshop is mainly (but not only) aimed at members of the queer Latin American diasporic community around Copenhagen and Malmö who are willing to, collectively, share their stories of migration and imagine ways of delicately translating them into a performative setting.

Iury Salustiano Trojaborg (she/her) is queer migrant interdisciplinary artist researcher who has worked practically and theoretically in Theatre, Performance, Dance and Opera in different environments and roles, including actor, performer, writer, director and dramaturge in Brazil, Germany, Denmark, Poland and Sweden. She is currently a doctoral candidate at Malmö Theatre Academy and also a member of the Agenda 2030 Graduate School at Lund University. A central problem that her doctoral research project “On Ancestrality and Regeneration: Performing Decolonial Journeys” poses is: How effective is it to tackle the concept of sustainability within the European performing arts context, without also dealing with the burden of Europe’s historical colonial past?
