Lampião in the Sky
The performance “Lampião in the Sky” is the most recent play from the Cia Os Buriti in partnership with the Sobrevendo Company from São Paulo. Written by Eliana Carneiro and directed by Luiz André Cherubini, the story begins from its ending: the tenant João Bezerra persecuting Lampião, a legendary figure from brazil`s Northeast history. The bandit gets shot on the heart and falls dead. In the sky, two clumsy angels are convoked. Their mission is to head down to earth and rescue Lampião, the dead, and to prepare this new possible “host” to the celestial world. Lampião no Céu is a funny journey into brazilian imaginary.
The text won the prize “Selo Altamente Recomendável da FNLIJ – Fundação Nacional do Livro Infantil e Juvenil”.
