Religião e Moral (Religion and Morals) is a lecture performance made in collaboration with Maria Gil.
Religion and Morals is a dramaturgical construction that revisits the practice of catechism, childhood mystical experiences, Saturday afternoon mass choir repertoire and Buddhist practices. Gil and Bonneville confront their personal memories with the concept of social anomie developed by Émile Durkheim, which points to the loss of identity in present-day societies as a consequence of the diminishing religious impact on our lives.
