Cordéis Minimalistas

Minimalist Strings
2019

João Mota directed the artists of Companhia Maior in a play based on an amusing and topical script by Luiz Felipe Botelho, which culminated in a public performance at Comuna Teatro de Pesquisa, in February 2019. In a sequence of scenes based on a text of Brazilian ‘cordel’ (string) literature, satire and comedy go hand in hand, resulting in a funny and very lively show.
