Political Signatures

flyer-01

 

Political Signatures is an innovative neurofeminist collaboration combining capoeira, dance movement psychotherapy and neuroscience.

As a development of the What Moves Us Project Beatrice Allegranti is collaborating with neuroscientist Dr Jonathan Silas (Middlesex University), Capoeira Master Ponciano Almeida (Mojuba Capoeira) and Dance Movement Psychotherapist Gerry Harrison (NHS) to work with a distinguished group of  international capoeira masters from the UK and Brasil. Amongst them is Mestre Brasilia – a historical pioneer in the development of capoeria in Brasil.

The project also includes 40 participants all of whom practice the Afro-Brasilian art of capoeira.

The first publication emerging from the research will be published in 2020: Political Signatures in Capoeira:  More-than-Human Pathways Towards Activism by Beatrice Allegranti & Jonathan Silas. 

A short documentary film about the research will also be available in 2020.
