Characters and Frontiers: Brazilian Scenographic Territory

The proposal presented by the curators of the Brazilian national exhibition for PQ’11 tackles the movement of scenography within today’s contemporary restlessness. It adopts the conceptual idea that scenography is a provocative art that establishes a pulsating frontier of languages, with an emphasis on the idea of the scenographer as an investigator of a scenography that provides a sensorial shelter for characters and ideas. It is a place for multiple characters from the Brazilian cultural territory, characters drawn from traditional dramatic and post-dramatic literature, from narratives of a hybrid nature and from everyday scenes. The physical exhibition space is presented as an installation where the interaction between scenography, visual art and popular culture reveals the Brazilian people.
