Dismantling The Show "Okàn"

During this discussion, we will share the resources used by Teatro da Pedra to construct its shows. The activity will feature technical demonstrations of the work done by the group's artistic staff and scenes from the children's show 'Okàn.' This is the the company's latest production, which deals with African ancestry.


Teatro da Pedra is a group based in São João del-Rei - MG that continues to delve into research, creation and production of theatre shows, as well as developing an educational project that serves hundreds of children, young people and adults in the region. The work is carried out through collaborative processes based on body and movement studies proposed by Rudolf Laban, improvisation games by Viola Spolin, polyphonic acting by Ernani Maleta and research into musicality and the actor's vocality by Francesca Della Monica. For the productions, the artists look for a dramaturgy that provokes, through the content and the staging, a displacement that allows us to re-envision the world in the micro or macro politics of everyday life.
