That dirty water that escapes from the garbage bag, usually resulting from the decomposition of food, gives name to a specific moment of the Brazilian carnival. It describes the slow and festive dispersion in the streets soon after the end of the parade block; when the bodies, once  together, have difficulty returning to the solitary state of individual, and remain clinging to each other as a last desire not to let themselves be singularized. This process, which makes the before and after indistinguishable, results on a body that sought to activate itself and is open to the desire to affect itself.
