“Unlike us, white people are not afraid of being crushed by the falling sky. But one day they may fear that as much as we do!” — Davi Kopenawa (2016)

“The ends of time are not the Anthropocene; that is a boundary, not a destiny. What comes next cannot be allowed to be the barbarism of the techno moderns.” — Donna Haraway (2017)

In an capitalocenic context, in which human action becomes a geological force that threatens the stability of the earth’s biological systems and its possibility of continuing to generate life, this lecture series proposes to understand indigenous dances and choreographic practices as ways of thinking and acting that allow establishing sustainable socio-environmental relations with non-human life systems.

This lecture conversation revisits the Masewal notions of dance, the understanding of mining and extractivism from a Masewal perspective, the possible repercussions of indigenous dance practices to our understanding of nature and choreography, and the possibility of translating indigenous ancestral embodied and oral forms of knowledge into the theatre, the museum and the academia.
