PAULA GOTELIP

Paula is from Minas Gerais and lives in Florianópolis/SC. Her childhood was spent between coffee trees and letters, and it was the difficulty with letters that made her drop out of courses and not write papers. At the age of 33, with the discovery of dyslexia, came the understanding of many aspects of her life, and today she is a doctoral student in Theater at UDESC.
As an artist, she seeks to bring the experience, the scenic experience, to the public, sensitizing the eye, having fun and building new possibilities.

DANCING WITH THE WORDS

Paula Gotelip de Souza Corrêa, in the book "Dancing with the Words", tells how a girl with dyslexia relates to the world. The narrative tells the difficulties with reading and knowing letters, numbers, and the correspondence between sounds and words, also the comprehension and acceptance of the disorder. The illustrations mix two techniques. Embroideries were made, photographed and after, in the computer, were applied colors and added new digital illustrations. The process, made in a synthetic way, brings that fusion of senses to the public. In consequence to the difficulty with dealing with letters, Paula didn't graduate college in Civil Engineering and wasn't able to write a graduate degree paper. She received the diagnosis of dyslexia at age 33 and started to see life in another way. Master and Doctor in Theater, she investigates art as a resource of sensibilization to the dyslexic reading and awareness to the non-dyslexics, stimulating the participation in a subtle dance.

PARLENDA

The piece "Parlenda" is a scenic experience made with and for children. It's about an invitation for them to experience being the actress of their own childhood memories, feelings, and frustrations of living with dyslexia.

The experience has a foundation in theatrical games that talk about the theme in a playful manner, not didactic. There's a collective construction into the general

proposition of a scenic script that goes from the phase before literacy until the adult phase, when the protagonist discovers herself being dyslexic and starts to play with the multiple possibilities and potentialities of this condition.

The piece is written and performed by Paula Goetlip, and directed by Liliana Perez Recio.

PAULA
by herself

I was diagnosed at the age of thirty-three and until that age I carried the label of slow, forgetful and poorly written. The diagnosis was liberating because from it I was able to place myself in the world respecting my limits. If I'm forgotten? Sometimes! Everything is kept here, it's just that there are times when it's more difficult to access. Slow? Depends, spend a day with me? The way I read cannot be a parameter for everyday actions. I perceive the world in a unique way, the fact that I forget a lot of things allows me to live the same experience more than once. Another thing that strikes me is how often I hear “wow, how creative you are”, and I think: how can a person not be creative? I realize that I build hyperlinks, that I associate a lot of information. That's great, but the problem is getting back to where you started.
As an artist, I try to build possibilities and strategies so that the public can experience and experience the scenic experience. Sensitizing the eye, entertaining, building new possibilities for the viewer motivates me as an artist, as a researcher and as a producer.
