Talk by Marcelo Nogueira

Marcelo Nogueira exhibits a varied set of talents, serving as a singer, actor, cultural producer, and music teacher, with a particular focus on singing and piano. He is a Ph.D. candidate (FAPESB Fellowship) in the Culture and Society program at the Federal University of Bahia (UFBA) and is also a research member at NuCuS – Research and outreach group Cultures, Gender, and Sexualities (UFBA). He earned his Master's and Bachelor's degrees in Music from the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro. His career is distinguished by involvement in various Brazilian musical theatre productions and popular music shows, notably along the Rio-São Paulo axis, garnering numerous awards and nominations.

His doctoral research, which will be the theme of the talk, focuses on examining how Brazilian musical theatre challenges the norms of cis-heteropatriarchal culture and promotes a "politics of subjectivation," thus offering marginalized spectators new perspectives on existence. Simultaneously, he explores how these productions shed light on queer identities and experiences within the cis-heteronormative audience, thereby contesting narratives of exclusion and prejudices related to gender, sexuality, and race. Drawing upon queer studies and the aesthetic principles of musical theatre, Marcelo Nogueira aims to explore the diversity of identities and communities, thus making a significant contribution to understanding and representing Brazilian cultural diversity, particularly within the domain of musical theatre.

The event will be held in-person at the Faculty of Social Sciences. You are welcome to join us online.
