GASTALDO, Édison. "O complô da torcida": futebol e performance masculina em bares. Horiz. antropol. [online]. 2005, vol.11, n.24, pp.107-123. ISSN 0104-7183.

This paper issues some topics of the social interaction occurrant in bars where football matches are transmitted, particularly aspects of gender performance. The data analysed refer to an ethnographic fieldwork being held since the beginning of 2004 in bars of the Greater Porto Alegre area, in Brazil. Three performatic modalities are discussed: the presence on the setting as performance, verbal challenges between the participants and joking dramatizations. I consider that these elements - among others - reveal part of the complex field of meanings related to masculinity in Brazilian society, being a constitutive part of the phenomenon that I call "football joking relationships".

Keywords : football (soccer); gender; masculinity; performance.
