Title: Rites and risk in the hang-gliding practice
Author: Pimentel, GGD
Abstract: Hand Gliding is an adventurous activity in nature whose feature is flying by using the aerospace technology and meteorological knowledge. The objective was to understand the meanings given to risk from hang gliding, and the presence of rituals in that corporal practice. To that, appropriating ethnographic research, a study was performed by observing the people and interviewing them and also through images recorded in northwest of the Parana. The study analyzed the three phases of the ritual: takeoff, flight and landing. Concluding, those people transit between these two ambits (safety and risk), needing to establish rites for demarcation of that transition.
