01.25 - Stage play "Palhaços"


On January 25, CCBB hosts the national premiere of the stage play “Palhaços” (Clowns). The season runs until February 10. The audience will have the rare opportunity to see on stage the Brazilian comedian Déde Santana.

The tragicomedy, written by Timochenko Wehbi in the 1970s, tells the story of a clown who has his routine altered when he runs into a random person in his dressing room. The meeting between Careta (Dedé Santana) and Benvindo (actor Fioravante Almeida), a shoe seller, raises questions on life and existence in a witty way. During the conversation, the characters start to tease each other, as in a game between these opposing figures, destabilizing beliefs and values. The stage play is directed by Alexandre Borges.

One of the highlights of “Palhaços” (Clowns) is Dedé Santana, an icon of humor, with decades of experience in the performing arts. The ambassador of the circus, elected at age 78, and heir of the art that eight generations of his family embraced, Dedé Santana delivers a must-see performance.
