DAWSEY, John Cowart. A casa de Joana Dark: drama e montagem. Mana [online]. 2012, vol.18, n.1, pp.91-119. ISSN 0104-9313. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0104-93132012000100004.
While discussing images of Our Lady and of the mothers and women of the Garden of Flowers (or “Devils’ Hole”), a peripheral district of a city in the interior of São Paulo state, this paper intends to explore the specificity of dramatic aesthetics. Rather than depend upon the aesthetics of social drama, as discussed in the works of Victor Turner, the present paper deals with a concept of montage that is inspired by the cinema of Sergei Eisenstein in order to illuminate a selection of field notes... and, along with Eisenstein, Julia Kristeva, Walter Benjamin, Michael Taussig and Antonin Artaud. Wit regards to those readers interested in hearing what these women may have to say, caution is suggested, for the words of these women may ring in our ears as the sounds of musket shots.
