PRETO – The People



Ubuntu: African philosophy which means: I am because we are.

A person is a person through other people.


The creation process promotes the exchange and collaboration between Brazilian and foreign artists, between a company and collaborating artists, between geographies and different generations.

The dramaturgy is shared between the dramaturge and director Marcio Abreu and the dramaturge and actress Grace Passô.

On stage will be some of the director’s long term collaborators: besides Grace Passô, the actress Renata Sorrah (from Rio de Janeiro²), the actor Rodrigo Bolzan (from São Paulo²), the actor Felipe Soares (from Minas Gerais²), the actress and lighting designer Nadja Naira (from Paraná²), the actress and producer Cássia Damasceno (also from Paraná²). 

There is still the collaboration of actress, translator and producer Giovana Soar, the ocmposer and musical director Felipe Storino, the researcher and producer Aline Vila Real, the producer Zé Maria.

Besides of course, a creation team composed by names as Marcelo Play (scenography) and Marcia Rubin (body), and the support of a technical team: Henrique Linhares (lightining and video), Eloy Machado, Caroll Teixeira and Helen Kaliski (production assistence).
