Creative process of Brazilian poetry, conceived and performed by Luiz Fernando Carvalho
From 2015, director Luiz Fernando Carvalho created a project whose main theme is the great Brazilian poets and their relationship with actors’ creative processes. With the provisional name InterPoems, the series is still an open work, an aesthetic research under development.
The first two exercises may be checked for the first time on the director’s official website. Cassia Kis presents Manoel de Barros’s Retrato do Artista Quando Coisa; and Lima Duarte recites Memória, by Carlos Drummond de Andrade.
The aesthetics of these exercises are hyper realistic and refer to an ID photo. A sort of hyper-portrait, revealing the Actor as a Poem of his own – not just an interpreter, but constituting, through poetry, his own identity.
The director marks poetry as a fundamental element in the investigation of Brazilian identity and culture, as a provocative question of philosophical and anthropological reflection of the multifaceted face that constitutes us.
