Real life invades the theatrical bubble in this urgent drama about street protests in Brazil. Two theatre student activists cut classes to demonstrate against slashes in the culture budget. History is being written in the streets, but their teacher prefers Shakespearean texts. Primeiro ato dives into the current unrest in Brazil: "Stop the world, I want to get off."
