Mestizo Orpheus: A Brazilian Hip-Hopera

Mestizo Orpheus tells of the return of a politician to his past and his connection to military dictatorship. A phone call about the disinterment of the body of his companion, Eurydice, puts Orpheus in contact with a past that he has tried for years to forget. As a result of this conflict, the text inspired by the Orphic myths brings characters from throughout time onstage to guide Orpheus in his descent into hell.


Núcleo Bartolomeu de Depoimentos works with language at the union of hip hop and epic theatre to create Hip-Hop Theatre, a pioneering concept in Brazil that opens numerous possibilities and fields of action, dialoguing with the trends and diversity of urban culture.
