Performers Without Borders / Performers sem Fronteiras

PERFORMERS WITHOUT FRONTIERS (PwF) is an artistic association of international solidarity. It brings together performers from diverse nationalities who carry out artistic, cultural and therapeutic projects with and for victims of shock traumas (armed conflicts, migrations, wars, natural disasters ...) or developmental traumas (elderly people, the sick, hospitalized in psychiatric hospitals, orphans...). PwF also conducts research, trainings, and supports artistic and therapeutical activities, along with a diverse population. In action since 2015 in Brazil, the PwF are linked to a research project coordinated by the artist-researcher Tania Alice at the Federal University of the State of Rio de Janeiro (UNIRIO). So far, the group has carried out interventions in Nepal after the earthquakes, in Brussels after the terrorist attacks, in Brazil with elderly people and hospitalized in psychiatric hospitals, France in palliative care, Haïti et Togo, among others.
