POZZO

Strangely surreal, an interpreter unfolds into diferent characters in a performance that emphasizes research on the contemporary clown and mask work, in addition to live music being played. Pozzo is a humorous show, interactive, interventional and absurdly full of meaning.

A metaphor allows breakneck approach to reality: Pozzo is an allegory of politicized and hierarchical being. In a post-apocalyptic environment, Pigs are the main victims of this disaster. The Pozzo obsession with eating pigs brought the extinction of the species and as a consequence the hunger settled. The private space of this figure is placed in the public square in a grotesque and bizarre way.
