First Act

Real life invades the theatrical bubble in this urgent drama about the street protests in Brazil. Two theatre student activists leave their acting classes to take part in a demonstration against cuts to the culture budget. Something big is happening out on the streets – history is being written – but the teacher prefers to stick to rigid Shakespearean texts.
