This review was originally written as a review exercise for the Latin American Theater course, offered by the Performing Arts College at Paulista University (UNESP) in 2022, and taught by professors Patricia Freitas and Paula Autran. Based on some topics presented in class, the author unravels the Brazilian play Ponto de Fuga in its dramaturgy and creation process, while discussing the successive erasure of the history and memory of colonized peoples, more specifically in Latin America. It also stirs up reflections on the self-identification of Brazilians as Latinos. The review aims to bring into debate the relations of oppression and dehumanization in the cultural field. It also highlights the power of memory in elucidating a multiplicity of perspectives and narratives.
