BWW Review: Proposing a Reflection on Contemporary Life, A Barca dos Coracoes Partidos Company Opens MACUNAIMA - UMA RAPSODIA MUSICAL
July 14, 2019

'Macunaima', Mario de Andrade's masterpiece, won a new theatrical production by Barca dos Coracoes Partidos Company. The direction by Bia Lessa proposes a reflection on contemporary life, transforming the text into a musical rhapsody. The show is part of the permanent relevance of the most characteristic work of Brazilian Modernism: its ability to still provoke spectators, more than ninety years after its creation. Behind the apparent comedy, we are faced with a tragic character that sums up many of the impasses of contemporary Brazil. After all, Macunaima is, at the same time, an indian and a quilombola who is seen, by force of circumstances, moved to the big city, where everything is different and frightening. He is also a survivor: on returning to his quest, he discovers that he has been decimated. There is no more place for him in the world. Maybe there is no world anymore.
