C., Celeste e a Primeira Virtude is a performance about the paths that artistic education opens to the burst of invention, that happy place where the human soul vertically connects the Earth to the celestial abyss.  A show that intends to contribute to an honest debate about freedom, the role of Art, love and the power that is installed in the various isms – machismo, racism, fascism – and other manifestations of fear.


Integrated in the Bienal Cultura e Educação, 2023 RETROVISOR: Uma História do Futuro, Plano Nacional das Artes



Also visit the video installation Corpos Celestes (Celestial bodies), on the same dates, in the Bernardo Sassetti room.
