About the event
The lecture performance “Menino 111” reminds us about the Rio de Janeiro police shooting and murdering of five young black males with a hundred and eleven gun shots in 2015. Through Jazz Dance and contemporary black performance aesthetics, the goal is to discuss antiblackness, its concept, the impact on every day life and question how arts can create an anti-antiblackness epistemology, aesthetic, theory and practice - or at least discuss it.
Aline Serzedello Vilaça is a 33 year old Black Brazilian jazzwoman. Mother, Dancer, choreographer, researcher and teacher with a BA and Licenciature in Dance from the Federal University of Viçosa/MG/Brazil, an MA in Ethnical and racial relationships from CEFET/RJ/Brazil, and another MA in Popular Culture from Federal University of Sergipe/SE/Brazil. Now, Aline is finishing her PhD dissertation in Performance Arts from University of São Paulo/SP/Brazil and also doing part of her research at UCR. Her interests are Jazz, Black history, afro diaspora studies, social justice, racism, antiblackness and slavery studies.
