Platform Doras is a feminist artistic group composed of nine female artists of different fields. It was founded on 2018, and through an interdisciplinary approach to art, we create performances, theater scenes, collaborative artistic events, and workshops. We also participate in audiovisual works, as in the short film “Ela viu aranhas”, directed by Larissa Muniz, in which we worked as performers and co-creators, it was exhibited in several film festivals.
In 2018, the Doras Platform created the theater play BRASA: a bonfire composed of 12 women. It won one of the best performances in the 19th festival of Galpão Cine Horto to the Audience’s Choice (Belo Horizonte, Brazil). This play also was presented in Casa Juta and in the João Ceschiatti’s Theater (BH, Brazil). Overall, it has been created by 21 women, in which 12 are presenting as actresses, in a piece composed of dances, chants, actions, speeches, and sonorous landscapes guided by the image of the fire. BRASA, (in English, "EMBER") is a polyphonic, political, poetical, and imagery proposal. It is a strong, collective, and incandescent blaze. An impetuous movement of resistance, empowerment, existence, and freedom.
Synopsis of BRASA: A diversity of women danceto their passions, explode in pleasure, sing with the flames, and embody the burning spark that would once burn them. Inventing fire and bewitchment in a place where it would be possible to be free, in this land called Brazil.
