Everything is body! One who writes, does it with the body, a body work. One who reads, does it with the body, the body work of someone. Above all, this anti-Thesis is an encounter with the body (corpus) of life, the result of my experience with the Cruelty by Antonin Artaud and the Poetry by Manoel de Barros as well as the resonance/vibrations from this experience, in my body. Therefore, I present a corpography that: • Reflects the cruelty and the poetry as performative manifestations (in-by) Artaud and Manoel de Barros. In other words, what is firstly revealed inside, ‘in’, and then ‘by’, outside oneself and finally projected into the collective. The word manifestation is acquired as a personal revelation and personal-collective, in terms of taking a stand in and for life. Moreover, the concept of performance implies an artistic, anarchic, transgressive, subversive, freeing and revolutionary expression which ends up changing the reality. • Proposes a friendship between Artaud and Manoel de Barros (Poetic Cruelty, Cruel Poetry), considering the existential issues and the similar perspectives regarding life, art, social structure and the urgency of and for freedom.
