Ways to Play
Ways to Play considers the aesthetic and disciplinary objectification of the human body by exploring the street as a field for an old popular game in Brazil, the Cinco Marias. In contemporary society, we succumb to the seduction of borrowed attitudes, in a kind of non-authenticity, in fragments of attitudes chosen, almost unconsciously, from a range of dominant stereotypes.
Erro Grupo is well-known in Brazil for the multidisciplinary urban interventionism that they have developed since 2001. The group develops street theater and urban interventions that deal with risk, violence, and peripheral performance, inserting art in daily life as political praxis.
