the personal is political

lecture performance

in collaboration with maria gil

the personal is political (o pessoal é político) is a series of lecture-performances inspired by the motto of the second-wave feminist movement proclaiming that the personal is political. maria gil and miguel bonneville created a trilogy of lecture performances, delving into various themes and presenting original first-person narratives drawn from their own experiences. using memories, fragments, and stories from their lives as raw material, they invite audiences to engage in collective reflection and idea exchange.

the texts from these lecture-performances have been gathered into a book published in 2021 by publisher douda correria. for further details about the book, click here.
