Focus Brazil : Navigating the Future

The Word Became Flesh Ziel Karapotó

O Verbo Se Fez Carne

Over a soundscape created by a rich audio collage, combined with a powerful improvised performance, Ziel Karapotó shows the continuum of colonization of Indigenous peoples in Brazil. Denouncing the violence and colonial power that appropriate their bodies, culture, languages, and souls, The Word Became Flesh is a ritualized reimagining of the epistemicides committed by Christian religions for over five centuries.
