Bárbara balaclava is a metanarrative based on the stories existing in the work of Thiago Martins de Melo and read through tarot. Cosmogonic, Baroque, hybrid and cyclical, runs the trajectory of an anonymous martyr from the expropriation and massacre of her village and her death under police torture to her experience as “enchanted” finding herself in previous incarnation and culminating in her baptism in the heart of Pindorama. Bárbara balaclava is an anarcho-shamanistic narrative of the transcendence of the anti-colonialist struggle.
