Viúvas-Performance sobre a Ausência (2011)

'Widows- Performance about Absence' is part of the continuing theater research the Tribo de Atuadores Ói Nóis Aqui Traveiz has been undertaking on the imagery and recent history of Latin America. Using Ariel Dorfman and Tony Kushner’s Widows as a starting point, the Tribe continues its investigation into the ritual scene, within the trajectory of Teatro de Vivência (experiential theater). 'Widows' features women who fight for the right of knowing where are the men who were disappeared or killed by the military dictatorship that the country went through. It is an allegory about the events that took place in the last decades in Latin America, and the need to keep the memory of this time of horror alive, so that it does not repeat itself. Ói Nóis Aqui Traveiz’ Teatro de Vivência strives for an open and sincere relationship with the audience, in which actors and spectators share a common experience with the intensity of a unique event, capable of producing new modes of perception.
