Theatro Municipal do Rio de Janeiro 2016



Music: Heitor Villa-Lobos
Costumes: Rene Salazar
Sets: Gringo cardia
Light design: Maneco Quinderé



“Choreographer Daniela Cardim changes the narrative slightly but keeps its essence, telling the story through a myriad of arm movements (alluding to the bird’s flight) and well articulated jumps. Using music from O Pássaro da Floresta and the symphonic poem Uirapuru itself, the choreography is charged with technical elements. "
