This article proposes an analysis of theatrical dance from the performance/politics binomial in which the body is seen as a privileged place to the analysis of power, since a body when dancing always take a stand on political field. To do this, we try to contextualize the dance-theatre of of the shows Antes que Matem os elefantes, by Companhia Olga Roriz and Eu Sou Mediterrâneo, by Companhia Vidas de A a Z, in their artistic course and analyse their coreographical and scenic languages having in view an understanding of the body that dances as a body that undergoes the actions of power relations, analysing it as a place of tension and clashes that develops articulations with memory and forgetfulness in a sensory-corporal game, speaking of the body as a archive and as a place of memory and resistance and look at it as a privileged place for the analysis of power.
