After a period of nearly two years of closing to the general public as a result of the pandemic, Teatro Unimede, located in the Santos Augusta building, on the emblematic corner of two streets in São Paulo, has reopened its doors for on-site performances from January 2022 and the return will be in style: with the actresses Regina Braga, with the show “São Paulo” dedicated to the capital of São Paulo under the direction of Isabel Teixeira, and Mariana Xavier, in the play “Before the Year That Comes” by the director Lazaro Ramos e Anna Paula Pozas.
The premiere of “São Paulo” is scheduled for January 28, at 9 p.m. In the show, the main character is the city of São Paulo itself, with its history, charm, curiosity, and contrast through music, texts and poems that speak of the city since its founding. Interspersed are texts by Roberto Pompeo de Toledo, Alcantara Machado, Mario de Andrade, Paulo Prado, José de Anchetta, Castro Alves, Guilherme de Almeida, Itamar Assembasso, Plinio Marcos, Paolo Bonfim, Drauzio Varela, music by Paolo Vanzolini and Luiz Adoniran Barbossa and Chico Cesar, Renato Teixeira, and other composers who sang the everyday scenes and vicissitudes of the townspeople.
Tickets will go on sale January 10, through Sympla (www.sympla.com.br) and at the Unimed Theater box office.
“before next year”
Portrayed by Mariana Xavier, with script by Gustavo Pinheiro, the highly entertaining comedy Before the Year That Comes has the backdrop to one of the most symbolic dates in the global calendar: New Year. Happy some and annoying to others, the unpredictability of this celebration is the central theme of the show, as it reveals the needs, anxieties and desires of seven different characters who face the end of the year from very different perspectives. The show is set to start on March 4. Tickets will go on sale January 17th by Sympla and at the Teatro Unimed box office.
Culture in the midst of a pandemic
