Birds Take the Sambodromo in RJ Carnival
|Our work’s proposed approach to
Aristophanes’ text “The Birds” is based on the existing compatibility
between the subject of such allegory and the politico-social reality of
our country. In both cases, we are dealing with the utopia of attempting
to change and falling on the cyclical inefficiency created by human
We plan to show our thoughts through a typically Brazilian celebration, i.e. carnival. This manifestation is similar in nature to the Greek Theater, in that it is a party for large audiences.
Thus, the scenic space chosen will be Rio de Janeiro’s Sambódromo
(the Apotheosis Square). The play will take at a specific section of
this venue and, based on a samba school structure, there will be
presentation’s with allegory cars, samba enredos (theme sambas) and
costumes. All this based on a puppet show. Our scale model will be
mechanized and manipulated by the group of students.
