HISTÓRIAS DE ALEXANDRE
Children’s musical show inspired by the tales of the book “Stories of Alexandre” by Graciliano Ramos, also author of the celebrated “Vidas secas” (Barren Lives) and “Memórias do cárcere” (Memoirs of Prison). In a free adaptation for children, Alexandre is a “story teller” who gives voice to the author’s poetic prose and, in his delusional narrative, transforms reality and reinvents the world. After the debut of the Brazilian Tales series, sponsored by CCBBs, the project traveled through all Rio de Janeiro State sponsored by Eletrobras.
Alexandre fills the dry emptiness of the hinterlands and of his life with marvelous tales, in which he himself is always the invincible hero. Encouraged by his wife, Cesaria, the teller unravels one by one, his impossible feats, wowing listeners and leading everyone to travel with his fantasy: a fun holed canoe that, he swears, will never sink.
Direction by Antonio Karnevale, with the actors Cesar Amorim and Marce Porena; soundtrack composed and performed live by Pedra Lispe musical group.
