Synopsis: The theatrical production of Desabrigo stems from the principle that the novel by Antônio Fraga is an insight on the fast transformation the former Capital of the Nation went through. It focuses particularly on the samba environment from the perspectives of two 'malandros' - Desabrigo and Cobrinha - and on the characters that surround their fight for the street territory and for the love of the prostitute Durvalina.Zeca Ligiéro is currently Associate Professor at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro State and the curator of Augusto Boal Archive. He coordinates since 1998 the Center for the Study of Afro-Amerindian Performances-NEPAA, which is dedicated to promoting research, dissemination, and exchange with various cultures of African, Indigenous, and other non-hegemonic origin, and to studying their inter-relations within Brazil.
