in this self-referential performance, Fábio overcomes the painful dichotomy of being trapped between his sexuality and hostile heteronormative religious pressures. this dichotomy is shrouded in symbolic confusion; layers of guilt are ritualistically shed, appropriating the very religious flagellation intended to purify the soul of his divergent desires, ultimately leading to a therapeutic state of content liberation.
