The Parlapatões group was founded in 1991. Its singularity is to conciliate the legacy of the circus, with comedy and theatre, with provocative humor, an original dramaturgy, improvisation and popular elements. The group operates in the whole country and tries to generate political debates and reflection in the artistic class and the public.

The group also inaugurated a second space in 2012, the Galapão Parlapatões, used as a circus training centre,  for theatre rehearsals, courses, workshops and events.

Teatro Oficina

1 month ago

The Teatro Oficina Uzyna Uzona  has reflected sixty years of Brazilian history: during the 60s it staged works that revolutionized modern Brazilian dramaturgy, to be exiled during the lead years of the military dictatorship, working in Portugal, Mozambique, France and England and producing cinematographic works.

Teatro Oficina, in its many decades of existence, has established itself as a place for the production of art as well as of knowledge. This theatre company mixes music, visual arts, video, film, architecture, urban planning and dance in its theatrical rites, which originate from co-creative processes among artists.

The company is represented by the symbol of an anvil, that was also placed on the facade of their seat, designed by the architect Lina Bo Bardi.
