Diego Araúja is a transdisciplinary artist from Salvador, Bahia, Brazil. His media are: performing arts, audiovisual, literature (prose, theatrical dramaturgy, cinematic script, poetry, direction and staging) and artistic installations. He has maintained a poetic process since 2015 entitled Aesthetics for a Non-Time, which aims to create transdisciplinary artistic spaces that have an immersive character. The first public result of this process was the work QUASEILHAS (2018), which earned Diego Araúja the nomination for best direction in the Braskem Teatro da Bahia 2019 Award. Diego Araúja, with Laís Machado, founded the ÀRÀKÁ Platform in 2017, a space that seeks to create networks with national and international Afro-diasporic artists.
