São Paulo, 19 April 2022 – throughout the month of may, Theatro Municipal de São Paulo will host several artistic and musical performances. With paid and free attractions, Theatro Municipal highlights in its programming the opera Coffee, with libretto by Mário de Andrade and its theoretical provocation by a choral opera, in which groups in society were portrayed as a collectivity rather than as individuals.





With unpublished composition by Felipe Senna, the libretto is situated in the historical context of the crisis of 1929 that paralyzed the ports, expelled peasants from farms and provoked a popular revolution in society. The performance is directly linked to the centenary celebrations of the Week of Modern Art and will be, after the experience of Hans-Joachim Koellreutter in the years 1990, a contemporary and current approach to the work of Mário de Andrade.

On May 1st, Praça das Artes receives the exhibition psychodemic, by the french artist Antoine d'Agata, which brings a visceral look at the artist in relation to the coronavirus pandemic, with photographs taken in France and a part in Brazil, in the cities of Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo.

Using the Magnum Photos Agency office, in France, as your work base and temporary housing, Antoine d'Agata leaves daily during the pandemic to record and observe the city, hospitals and health centers. At the beginning of this journey Antoine adopted “thermography” – a thermal camera attached to the cell phone, whose thermal device reacts and converts the heat of bodies and objects into an image. Without revealing people's identity, the thermography used captures the activity of the bodies, Your lives", what's inside.

“The presentation of the opera Café crowns the program for the celebrations of the Centenary of the Week of Modern Art at the Municipal Theater, not only for its emblematic character, for being a text by Mário de Andrade put on stage by the Coral Paulistano, but also because we are betting on a new composition and a scenic direction that updates the issue of the collective with the participation of one of the most important Brazilian social movements, the MST, sharing the stage with the Balé da Cidade de São Paulo and guest artists.”, affirms Andrea Caruso Saturnino, director general of the Municipal Theater.
