In this performance-lecture, Deise Nunes explores the main idea behind her PhD project Estuaries: Anti-colonial, Feminist, Afro-Diaspora Perspectives on Performance. The practical-theoretical project departs from the saying «Black women are like the waters: they grow stronger when they meet» and goes on to develop practices where artistic visions meet on both socio-political and spiritual contexts, originating new streams.

Born in Porto Alegre, Brazil, Deise Faria Nunes is an artist-researcher with a special interest in performance, rituals and audiovisual. She is a PhD fellow in the Theatre in Context program at the Faculty of Fine Arts, University of Agder, Norway, and a documentary film student at Kino-Doc, in Portugal.

She contributed as co-author in the historical anthology New Daughters of Africa (2019), edited by Margaret Busby. She was the head of the National Theatre Committee at the Arts Council Norway and a member of the Nordic Culture Fund's performing arts committee. Since 2017, Nunes has been working with a focus on research, production and dissemination of black women’s activities in the arts and culture.
