Group .BR, NY’s only Brazilian theater company, presents “Inside the wild heart” – an immersive theatrical experience based on the works of Clarice Lispector, Brazil’s most acclaimed female writer. The show transports audience directly inside Lispector’s heart creating an experience that encourages audiences to engage with literature on a sensory level.
Conceived by Andressa Furletti and Debora Balardini and directed by Linda Wise, the show integrates visual arts, film, music & performance art, which embodies the writer’s deepest feelings, serving as an entry point to Clarice’s incredible work, still mostly unknown in the US. The performers embody the writer’s biggest themes such as identity, solitude, madness, violence, faith, time, violence, maternity, childhood and freedom accompanied by Mario Forte on violin.
Held at Aich Studio, from October 18th to November 18th, a preserved 19th- eleven different journeys, mounted and performed throughout the building. Once “Inside the wild heart”, visitors are free to choose whom to follow, where to go, how much time you spend in each room and, to be a spectator or an active participant.
