MANOEL DE BARROS EM MUSIC AND POETRY
‘Vide Verso’ is a partnership between actress Marilene Grama and pianist and composer Júlia Tygel, dedicated to the creation and performance of hybrid spectacles involving literature, music and theatre. “Manoel de Barros em música e poesia” (“Manoel de Barros in music and poetry”) is the partnership’s first project. Held in Portuguese, the performance includes instrumental music, acting, poetry declamation and original songs specially written for poems by Brazilian icon Manoel de Barros, as well as other uses of the performer’s voices, bodies and the piano.
The project was initiated in 2012, and counts with lighting design by Cristina Souto, costumes by Anne Cerutti, vocal coaching by Wagner Barbosa and executive production by Erika Breno.
