Mato Grosso is an ongoing and ever-changing impersonation of Brazilian singer Ney Matogrosso. It started as a karaoke performance and went on to transit between different contexts of contemporary dance, sound art and drag. It remains firmly anchored on the personal memory of the performer related to this icon of Brazilian culture. 

A video of its first iteration can be found here.
