This Thesis aims to propose the concept of transcorporeity, from the perspective of the body wisdom and proposes to rethink the question of the construction and elaboration of knowledge, still governed by a colonial heritage - from an Eurocentric epistemic perspective - which includes the belief in the traditional method of modern science as a hegemonic paradigm. The investigation in the territory of the sensitive and creative body arts, having as reference the methodological proposal of the Performative Research, proposed to develop an investigative corporeality and its own methodology born from the field experience and an indisciplinary performance, which came to be designed as a intuitive-creative methodology. The initial steps of the research pointed to both the need for the decolonization of thought and the corporeity of the researcher herself, as well as the theoretical alignment with the epistemic decolonization movements. In this path, a strong intertwining of epistemic references from the global south was built, more specifically of traditional epistemologies of the peoples originating in Brazil and of African-Latinamerican origin, among others, interweaving an inclusive transepistemic perspective, of knowledge coexistence. The germination of the notion of transcorporeity, and the perception of several dimensions of its manifestation, became a medullary axis and an integrating element of the constellations of concepts, knowledge and experiences with which the thesis is involved and takes shape.
