Marcelo Evelin



    • Théâtre de la Cité internationale
      October 14 to October 19

    The third opus of a trilogy which began with Sertao (2003) and Bull Dancing (2006), Matadouro is based on the story of a community’s fight for social justice in the XIXth century.
    Eight dancers, naked and their face masked, perform an enigmatic ritual aimed at an evasive enemy. After residing several years in Europe, Marcelo Evelin questions his home
    country’s history and identity.
