Macacos

Show Information

Physical Theater Festival Chicago presents: "Macacos" by Clayton Nascimento, Cia do Sal (Brazil) Multi-award-winning monologue about the history of prejudice, exclusion and violence. ​ Using nothing more than his own body, voice and a lipstick, Nacimento brings the story of Brazil and slavery to the stage, from rulings by the Portuguese Court during slavery to the present day, when executions of black people by the police go unpunished. In this moving and multi-award-winning monologue MACACOS, he takes the audience through this history of prejudice, exclusion and violence. ​ Taking to the stage historical facts and harrowing situations, he heartbreakingly gives a voice to the mothers mourning their arrested and murdered daughters and sons. He also makes a direct connection with the audience as he reflects on slavery. From beginning to end, MACACOS is more than a performance: it shows where art has the power to inspire social change.
