Osmo at CASA Festival

September 28, 2017

I am delighted to invite you all to watch this Brazilian show! I am working as an artist liaison at CASA Festival and super excited to bring to London audiences a little bit of Hilda HIlst. 

 

Based on a short story by one of Brazil’s leading female writers Hilda Hilst, this is the tale of Osmo, a serial killer with literary pretensions. While he is sitting at home in the bath trying yet again to write his memoirs, he receives a phone call from a friend inviting him to a dance. As he prepares for another night that will end in sex and murder, Osmo tells his remarkable story and muses with glorious irony on the aesthetic power of horror. Directed by acclaimed Susan Damsceno, Osmo features a masterful performance by Donozeti Mazonas who delivers the show fully naked in an open aquarium. This hilarious and deliciously macabre show, described by the company as anti-stand-up, has shocked and rocked audiences across Brazil. Performed in Portuguese with English surtitles.

Osmo de Movicena, Brasil (3 - 7 de outubro)

Baseada no conto de uma das mais importantes escritoras brasileiras, Hilda Hilst, esse é o conto de Osmo, um matador profissional com pretenções literárias. Enquanto ele está sentado em casa na banheira tentando novamente escrever suas memórias, ele recebe o telefonema de uma amiga que o convida para dançar. Conforme ele se prepara para outra noite que certamente terminará em sexo e assassinato, Osmo conta sua marcante história, divertindo-se com uma ironia gloriosa sobre o poder estético do horror. Dirigido pela aclamada Susan Damasceno, Osmo traz uma atuação magistral de Donozeti Mazonas que atua completamente nu dentro de um aquário aberto. Este espetáculo hilariante e macabro descrito pela companhia como anti-stand-up, chocou
e agitou espectadores por todo o Brasil. Apresentado em português com legendas em inglês.
