If you're a fan of Then She Fell, Queen of the Night & Sleep no More, you will definitely love INSIDE THE WILD HEART. Conceived by Andressa Furletti & Debora Balardini, the production is a fully immersive theatrical experience showcasing the work of Clarice Lispector, Brazil's most acclaimed female writer, transporting audiences directly inside Lispector's heart & creating an experience that encourages audiences to engage with literature on a sensory level. The show integrates visual arts, film, music & performance art, which embodies the writer's deepest feelings, serving as an entry point to Clarice's incredible work, still mostly unknown in the US.
CLARICE LISPECTOR (1920-1977) is Brazil's most acclaimed female writer. She was described by researchers such as Iba Mendes & Benjamin Moser as the most important Jewish writer since Franz Kafka, with her trademark stream-of-consciousness writing style often being compared to that of Virginia Woolf & James Joyce. In fact, Clarice's Complete Stories was recognized among the best books of 2015, by the New York Times & the Boston Globe.
The underlying thread across Lispector's work is the questioning of oneself & humanity. Her work is universal, transcending ethnicity, race, religion, time, gender & place. Many people say & we agree, that you don't just read Clarice, you experience it.
Group .BR's mission is to present Brazilian culture through the performing arts to New York. As the only Brazilian theatre company in the city, Group.BR is the voice of the yet unknown Brazilian dramaturgy in the city.
DATES: November 3 - 20 ~ Thursday - Sunday @ 8pm
