Moderation Eduardo Bonito | Guests Princess Ricardo Marinelli, Zahy Guajajara, Alice Ripoll – Cia REC
“Brasil Secuestrado/Brazil Hijacked” aims to give visibility to the current severe democratic crisis in Brazil and how it is affecting the country’s arts and cultural sector. The programme brings together Brazilian artists and cultural activists who, amidst the turbulence, are working to provide discursive spaces for gathering, debate and art.
Tanz im August's Happy to Listen session will include video performances by Princess Ricardo Marinelli and Zahy Guajajara, and the screening of a short film by Alice Ripoll - Cia REC. These artists, coming from diverse backgrounds, give an insight into the scope of the country’s inequalities and the destruction of contemporary culture and thinking under Bolsonaro’s government.
“Brasil Secuestrado/Brazil Hijacked” was created by Eduardo Bonito and Isabel Ferreira for the Antic Teatre / Grec Festival 2020 in Barcelona and is currently touring Europe and Latin America.
