Rita Natálio

Is currently preparing a double PhD in Artistic Studies (FCSH/NOVA - Lisbon) and Anthropology (USP - Sao Paulo) with an FCT scholarship. Her focus is on the Anthropocene and perceptions of humanity-nature, particularly in dialogue with indigenous cinema and multi-species ethnography. Rita works primarily with poetry, dramaturgy and performance, and is presently involved with the creation of a series of lecture-performances (“Anthroposcenes” 2017, “Geophagy” 2018) that are directly linked to her PhD research. She holds a BA in Choreographic Arts (University Paris VIII) and a MA in Contemporary Culture, and has also published two poetry books, Handicraft (2016) and Human plants (2017).
