Performance autoethnography is qualitative research methodology that aims to problematize resistances between the “self” (auto-) and the collective (ethno-) in the act of writing (-graphy). The article thus aims to discuss the theoretical and practical construction of performance autoethnography and its applicability as a qualitative research and analytical method in the field of Collective Health through a performance autoethnography writing. By problematizing the epistemic and ontological basis of performance autoethnography, pointing to possibilities for its development and inclusion in studies in the field of Collective Health, the article presents performance autoethnography as a strategy to expand the possibilities for social justice, democratization, and pluralisms in and from research practices. Performance autoethnography, oriented by the episteme “postcolonial”, explores decolonializing approaches that provoke and create conditions for the transformation of the academic view itself and the knowledge that prioritizes certain representations of “the other” and thus mainly problematizes how subaltern and marginalized histories relate to what are considered hegemonic systems.
