In this situation of isolation, we are distancing ourselves from friends and relatives. The place where we live has become the workplace, school and leisure space.

“Broken Tales of Love” presents the story of four passionate and jealous little people, who argue about possessive and loving relationships. The staging takes place through humorous dialogues, a sophisticated language of movement and a musical direction that aligned the entire staging, the songs in some numbers are played by the group of performers themselves - Diego de Abreu, Isadora Medella, Juliana Linhares and Tiago Herz. The work features original songs and tales by Eduardo Rios, inspired by the work of Machado de Assis.
“I came up against‘ Tales of Love and Jealousy ’, I liked the title and only afterwards I saw that it was Machado de Assis. I was excited to create a children's play about jealousy, from the writer's universe ”, remember Duda Maia. “We are all jealous and the child is also very jealous.
To ela, believe: “Theater for children doesn’t have to be just a cool story, need to be necessary, bring reflections to those who watch. It is necessary not to underestimate neither the intelligence of the children nor the ability of them to engage in important dialogues with adults ”.

"Let's Buy a Poet", inspired by the book of the same name by Afonso Cruz, narrates the arrival of a poet at the home of an ordinary family. In this home, live a father, who only thinks about making money; a mother, that organizes housework every day; a smart and curious girl who likes to understand the meaning of things; and a boy in love, who loves to do math.
The Poet teaches the little ones to observe butterflies, write their own poems and give hugs. The montage creates a fun reflection on our capacity for invention, the meaning of productivity and the importance of friendship. The show mixes music, poetry and dance in a setting that brings elements of a park, making the playful and dynamic staging.
