Celebrating 15 years of intense work we decided to create this new show to share with audience an intensification of our senses that only art can bring to us. Molhados&Secos is inspired in extreme dry and wet realities. In real and fantastic stories of people who suffered a brutal intervation of human or natural disasters in their lives. An invitation to think about human fragility faced to nature. Its a compilation of four scenes, directed by four different directors (Fernando Villar, Idit Herman, Monica Alla and Raquel Scotti Hirson). Visual dramas and Visual comedies about the capacity of dreaming, resilience and overcoming after obstacles. Creating a show about the relations between economical and ecological crises led us to research how an individual affects and how an individual is affected. We tried to reconstruct 2 minutes of the personal experience of the actors (Marcos Becker and Marilia Ennes) when they lost everything in a flood. In the attempt of ressurecting a real experience through memory we need to give up the hope of reality and true news. In the same way we cannot trust the truth of any news since jornalistc ones to the history itself.
