performance at Pornceptual, Alte Münze, Berlin / 19 November 2016

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.
