Depicting one of the most striking periods in our recent history, the play tells the story of our character “Vovô”, who since childhood has lived in a distant country. Early adulthood, face the wars, the hard journey and adaptation to Brazil, until you reach old age, when he becomes the storyteller capable of thrilling with his saga, and with the accounts of his life, so fantastic, but so real.

The play makes the character an icon of so many heroes who have faced the hard journey of profound social transformations of the last century, with only one major goal: live intensely and deeply. The show received the Panamco Theater Award, in 2002, in the “Best Scenography” category, and was also selected by the project “Sesi Bonecos do Brasil”.
