My sister made a promise for me.
If I was accepted as PhD student at the
University of São Paulo,
she would participate in the most popular
Catholic Procession if my hometown.

Our Lady of Medianeira Procession attracts
about 400 thousand Christian’s believers to Santa Maria.
I decided to pay her promise and be part of the Procession.
I wrote my own prayer, asking to people to recognize their own free-will.
The “Prayer for Free Ones” is the voice of the
multitude listening to their own desire.
With this poetry I recognize the chaos and the art as bliss.
I write as a brave human being asking for truth and freedom.
Wearing a white costume and a mask, holding an one-meter-candle,
and walking on the opposite direction of the multitude
I distributed about 1500 prayers.
I could listen their soul.
And for many times they helped me to get back to “the right track”:
being with them as a performer.
Performing for the multitude with love and compassion was an act of
respect and self-liberation by the means of art.
I use the language of religion to say words on what I believe:
the ART as an act of altruism and joie-de-vivre.
