Jota Mombaça: We agreed not to die (durational performance, admission at all times)

We Agreed Not To Die is a performance series inspired by the namesake work of Conceição Evaristo (A gente combinamos de não morrer. Olhos D’água, 2014), a brazilian fiction writer whose work addresses, through afro-diasporic lens, questions of violence, resilience and necropolitics, among many others. The performance consists in a task-oriented durational act, in which Jota Mombaça manufactures handcraft knives with precarious materials such as wood, shoelace and broken glass. A set of texts, names and songs follow the entire process, as a form of bringing into the space a multitude of voices that, through his own voice, reclaims their bodies, their memories and their modes of surviving in spite of captivity and death.
