Diary of a Colonial Diarrhea: Trying to justify the unjustifiable
This is a text by the Brazilian theatre maker and educator, Rodrigo Batista. For Batista: this is an essay “resulting from a process of artistic reflection condemned by the neoliberal ties of individualism and the boycott of collective and decentralized thoughts. It is a diary of colonial diarrhea, generated by centuries-old bad meals, seasoned with Patriarchy, White Supremacy, and the maintenance of hegemonies that continue to explode entire digestive systems, killing cultures and exposing rotten intestines on hygenic screens for consumption 24/7”.
