Published 13 books and collections, and 53 articles in scientific journals. Between theater and anthropology, explores refigurations of anthropology made possible by the works of Walter Benjamin and leading thinkers of theater and performance (Artaud, Brecht, Schechner and others). A set of concepts results from these studies: tension-thick description (descrição tensa), f(r)iction (with r between parentheses), seismology of performance, everyday astoundment (espantoso cotidiano), margins of margins, Benjaminian mimetic circuit, subterranean regions of symbols, entrails of dreams, stories of oblivion, sound unconscious, bodily index, corpoiesis, tension-thick montage, and dislocations of the sensed or lived place of things. Research interests include anthropology of performance, anthropology of experience, and Benjaminian anthropology.
