It is in its musical parts that the group excites; they cause laughter, they undress life on stage and expose the frailty of these characters, who are accepted neither by society nor by themselves.

— Bruno Cavalcanti, Noticias de Anna Ramalho News

The interaction of the artists with the audience makes the gap between stage and public shrink more and more, putting society immersively into the debate.

— Rondinelle de Paula, Festival de Campina Grande/PB

The actors form a steady cast sending a powerful message: that everyone has the right to be. And to be respected for it.

— Miguel Arcanjo Prado, Blog do Arcanjo

In short and fragmented scenes, the bizarre figures of this cabaret make us think on the trajectory of mankind in contemporary society.

— Bruno Motta, Catraca Livre

It is an extraordinay performance in which sometimes laughter and tears come together in a rare combination that leads us to the deepest of human emotions.

— J. Gama, Theatre Pedagogue

About Cabaret Fucô

Cabaret Fucô is a musical tragicomedy. It had its première in November, 2016 and has already been performed in 25 cities all over Brazil. The show discusses depression, women´s rights, internet anxiety and bullying based on the ideas of Michel Foucault. The characters were inspired by the popular 1930 freak circus, such as the bullet man, the clown, the bearded woman, the double-faced woman, the decadent clown, the magician, among others. They interact and entertain the audience for 90 minutes, making them laugh and think about their own lives.

He has performed in 15 countries and won prizes in Brazil and abroad. In 2013, both artists were responsible for the foundation of Satyros Cinema.

About Os Satyros Theater Company

Os Satyros Theater Company was founded in São Paulo in 1989 by Ivam Cabral and Rodolfo García Vázquez. In the first years, they produced acclaimed performances such as Sades ou Noites com os Professores Imorais (1990) and Saló, Salomé (1991) and became well known all over the country. In 1992, they were invited to several festivals in Europe and decided to move to Lisbon (Portugal). In the European period, they produced several shows (De Profundis, 1993; Sappho de Lesbos, 1995 and Woyzeck, 1997). In 2000, Os Satyros went back to São Paulo and opened their venue at Praça Roosevelt, considered to be one of the most dangerous areas in downtown, with criminality, prostitution and drug dealing. In a few years, due to the company´s social and theatrical work, the area radically changed and became safe, becoming the main cultural point of the Brazilian metropolis, with theaters, cafés and other cultural spaces. The company is also responsible for the largest free arts festival in Brazil, with more than 300 shows presented in four days in the Springtime, in a Theater Carnival that brings together over 50,000 spectators and 1,000 artists.
