THE SHOW "Uma História à Margem" WAS CANCELED


5 Jul 2013 - 23:30

São Luiz Teatro Municipal (Jardim de Inverno)

Admission 7 €

Author and performance: Ricardo Chacal (Brazil)


“A Marginal Story” is a theatrical monologue that follows the story of Chacal and offers us a tasty and intimate record of the cultural effervescence of the last 40 years in Rio de Janeiro. Using memory as its guiding thread, the performance develops into a scenic experience that flits between the personal and the collective, fiction and reality, theatre and documentary. His approach is neither formalistic nor academic: it is not the vision of a journalist, historian or essayist, but the vision of a poet. His originality lies in the fact that, for the protagonist, with his poetic words and irreverent presence, he chooses an artist who has always lived ‘in the eye of the hurricane’.
