Felisberto Sabino da Costa

This workshop proposes an experience in which the skin and paper (Kraft) generate friction that will constitute a choir/body of figures. The trigger images for the creation of puppets-masks are (de)moving bodies, passersby observed in the city. In the end, the choir will create an action, a snapshot based on improvisation, based on a theme that will emerge from the desires of the group.


Felisberto Sabino da Costa is a lecturer in the Department of Performing Arts at the ECA/USP. Specialist in Theatre and Dance, Master and Doctor in Performing Arts at the School of Arts and Communication at USP. In 2001 he completed post-doctoral research on contemporary dramaturgy at the Université Sorbonne Nouvelle under the supervision of Professor Jean-Pierre Ryngaert.
