Actress, writer, producer and director
Drive-Thru is a theatrical intervention in a fast-food format. The "consumer" chooses what to watch from a menu with 8 monologues to pick from - each monologue takes maximum four minutes. In clear irony about the consumption society, the public order and watch individually to a mini show within a big acrylic box. The monologues were written by the actresses.
Also available on other versions:
Since the our first gig of Drive-Thru we have had children interested on coming inside the cabin. Children of all ages were always curious about Drive-Thru. Then, at that time we felt we should create an option of monologue that the parents could watch with their children, and it was a success! We liked so much to perform for children, and they feel so comfortable inside our small theatre that after a good research we finally created the Drive-Thru Kids in 2011. We had an incredible demand of audience since then: we got several fundings from the government and cultural spaces to perform Drive-Thru for kids in festivals, schools and communities. We could reach places in the suburbia of São Paulo without a theatre. Drive-Thru was the first theatrical experience of many children who didn't have the possibility of going to a conventional show. I have learned so much with this experience and I am very proud that my company is still doing this so important work in Brazil.
