ARTESANAL Cia. de Teatro


ADÁGIO - Divulgação from Artesanal Cia. de Teatro on Vimeo.


Adagio is a dramatic poem for two actors, a puppet and a cello. Contemporary theatre inspires it and it emerges from a significant force, fed by language exchange researches that were developed side by side, articulately, in the creation of the text, the score and the scene.
The play is inspired initially by Mauro Siqueira’s short story, and it explores powerfully and poetically, the relationship between mother and son. Transposing this story to the stage, with the use of a human size puppet, was a creative challenge that accompanies the line of research that Artesanal Cia. de Teatro has been developing lately.

“The image that is left by the show is the one of an aged, blurred and unfinished painting. You just contemplate it. The actors barely move, they give us peaceful feeling that is also sad. The real harmony is not only in regards to the music but also to the colours and the energy that the actors exchange with the puppet; that is Adágio.”
