This is a meeting-article, a dialogue-article between two teachers-searchers and two artists dedicated to the performance and who also have the university as a space of experimentation: Sara Panamby and Filipe Espindola. In this meeting we tried to translate in words the teaching/affections of the couple's experiences. The question about what the performance is, and specifically the experiences created by the performers, led us to examples of the pains and moorings which condition our bodies, bio-political violences in some of their dimensions, but also to the strengths, to the pains of freedom and to the delights that we can produce to escape from the affective and sensory-motor cage that colonizes us. Decolonization of the bodies from all the violence, but also cross-colonization that makes all of us others there: a learning that could only happen because of a certain violence, astonishment, and amazement.
