Resumo

This research focuses on the acts that took the streets of Rio de Janeiro between June 2013 and July 2014. They are observed from both an aesthetic and political perspective, not simply as a criticism toward the model of city developed for mega-events, but rather as a proposal for different ways of inhabiting the urban landscape. By perceiving the plurality of the activated forms of expression and the centrality of direct action in the practice of the protesters, I address these acts with reference to the notion of performance, considering especially the bodies which have occupied the urban space with their choreopolitics, theatres of invasion, polyphonic choirs, multiple writings, and the creation of Temporary Autonomous Zones always ready to re (in)ssurect.
