Presented by the Ministry of Tourism and Banco do Brasil,

"Fog" is a demonstration of strength by human beings who do not give up.

Directed by Yara de Novaes, the show opens on the night of 12 November, the CCBB São Paulo.

The show Neblina had national premiere in January 2020, at CCBB Belo Horizonte. After a break from 17 months, due to the closing of the theaters across the country, Mist returned on poster, with in-person audience, in August 2021, for two-month season at CCBB Rio de Janeiro. In São Paulo, the show opens on the night of 12 November, the CCBB São Paulo, where it stays on until January. The work was conceived by actor Leonardo Fernandes (APCA Award 2017, best actor) with producer Tatyana Rubim, with unpublished text by Sérgio Roveri (Shell-SP Award 2006, of best author) and direction of the award-winning Yara de Novaes. In scene, Leonardo Fernandes and Fafá Rennó live the drama of Diego and Sofia, Rafael and Julia's alter egos, that takes place on a cold and foggy night. The season of the show Neblina, the CCBB São Paulo, it will be with the public in person and the representations will take place every Friday, to 18:30h, and on Saturdays and Sundays, às 17h. Tickets are purchased in advance through the website


about dramaturgy

Director Yara de Novaes explains that Sérgio Roveri's play has many layers: "It's a text that looks simple at first glance and when you lean over, realize it's a very deep text, layered, which means much more than the words say. These are texts that come with a previous life, the words are just the result of this life he manages to generate there, in very deep places. We have seen this while we are studying the text or already setting up the scene or studying the text in scene. We realized that many times we did not understand the absolute of that text. He always has a mystery to offer us., not this mystery of the plot, but a human mystery to offer us.” to Yara, in the assembly, the big challenge is to get, through the text, jump to a place that is more transcendent: "It's a text that asks for the transcendent." The director believes that the play wants to propose the inexorability of life. "Death is a very sure thing, as well as the loss. However, we avoid it all the time. We Westerners understand death as the end and not as a transformation or a natural course of life. And this is the big pain, we tend to want to keep everything as it is, it's very difficult to accept that things change.”

the scenic truth

to the author, the key word of the show is the truth: "Each element or each agent of the part, list, direction, scenario, trail, have to compose a real game. The great challenge of the piece in this regard is the following: if there's a fake tail showing, the structure of this couple dismantles. Sofia has to believe everything Diego is saying and he needs to believe everything Sofia is saying and doing. It's the belief of what they're living on that particular night, that makes the closure of the plot so impactful and surprising". And it is little by little that this couple will show themselves to the public. Roveri says that the show brings what we are willing to do in pursuit of overcoming difficulties. "It's a piece that shows that human beings don't know limits or they are challenged to extrapolate their limits in the name of overcoming, in search of a new day, of a new morning, of a reinvention of life. And even though I'm not sure what you're doing, you do. The characters are moved by this good intention to keep life, health, the relationship. The play is a demonstration of the strength of human beings who do not give up.”

Elements that make up the scene

About the elements that make up the scene, Yara de Novaes explains that “when we talked about this space, which has a dramaturgical function, we understood that he would need to be spiritual, a space that could promote these metaphors, that the text itself suggests or evokes. It's an empty space at first, with a pendulum, which is a stone. The soundtrack follows the characters. give them ground, or makes them have the possibility to leave that space, from that time." The director explains that these elements on stage contribute because they are there: "to help you understand that everything is impermanent, that nothing will be the way it is forever. I think this is what we are all looking for., a very deep understanding of this impermanence.”

The cold and fog of that dawn will force Sofia to wait until dawn to be able to leave. strangely, the dawn for the two characters takes a long time to come.
