This work aims at developing a study about Hélio Oiticica´s invention/performance Parangolé. The painter, sculptor and performance artist was born in Rio de Janeiro, in 1937 and died in the same city, in 1980. Parangolé is approached here as a language/performance of the subjectivities and the non-representational practices. The axis of the analyses is the artist´s written material which revolves around his parangolés (objects and performance) and his other objects. I search for an understanding of Parangolés entering Oiticica´s labyrinth-world. The analysis revolves around the thinking of three authors. Kenneth Burke (1897-1993): Symbolic action and Terministic Screens - categories of language analyses in his dramatism. Russian philosopher Mikhail Bakhtin (1895- 1975): his concept of exotopia - exceeding view (consideration of the other´s view, time and place of perspectives constituted in the work of art), to situate the presence of the spectator/participant of Parangolés. What Richard Schechner calls “actual”: a special manner of constituting and dealing with artistic experience. A mimesis event: imitation, presentation (in time, be present, existence, existence in time), representation and expression of the actions of living in the attempt to occupy the spaces between past and present, individual and group, inside and outside. I investigate in Parangolés what is beyond imitation or representation of reality; and beyond the expressions of mental and emotional states, circumscription that nests Oiticicas´s behavioral exercises. Chapter I - Ethics, aesthetics, action, and behavior of the embodied language of P(p)arangolés; Chapter II - Overview from an artistic angle of the Brazilian cultural scene of the 1960s: the constructivist art of the concrete and neo-concrete movements. Political and artistic matters from a sociocultural perspective; Chapter III - Deals with language as wills of presentation, introduction, and representation of the world, of us and others, in social interactions/performances; Chapter IV - A view from Burke´s screens; Chapter V - What one cannot see or see at Bakhtin´s screens; Chapter VI - Actualizing (Actual) as proposed by Schechner.
