Grupo

Matula Teatro Group is a collective of artists that, together with other theatrical references, integrates the artistic scene of Campinas (SP), a region of considered cultural effervescence in the interior of the state of São Paulo. Since 2000, it has been carrying out activities based on the actor's work that include several aspects of theatrical performance: creation and circulation of performances, short and medium length formative actions, and management of the Rosa dos Ventos Cultural Space, the group's headquarters.

For the artistic creations, the group has already been inspired by the contact with homeless people, women who live in rural settlements, families from small circuses and Saharawi refugees, which resulted in shows of unprecedented dramaturgies. The interface with literature also references creations that had as a starting point the adaptation of short stories by Hilda Hilst, Mia Couto, and Julio Cortázar.

Currently Matula Teatro Group transits in two distinct and complementary fields: the black room (stage performances) and the street (urban interventions), experimenting different poetics and ways of relations between spectator and scenic space.

We keep in repertory: COMO SE FOSSE (2020, directed by Veronica Fabrini, inspired by the work of Spanish playwright Gracia Morales), UM CONTO INFINITO (2016, directed by Marcelo Lazzaratto, original soundtrack by André Abujamra and dramaturgy by Cássio Pires), JOGOS CORTAZIANOS (2015, directed by Flávio Rabelo), IMAGO (2014, co-production between Brazil-Chile, directed by Claudia Echenique and dramaturgy by Leonardo Gonzalez), EXILIUS (2012, solo by Erika Cunha directed by Alice Possani), AGDA (2011, co-production with Boa Companhia, Campinas, SP) and the Poetic Intervention PASSAGENS (2011, directed by Moacir Ferraz).

Matulas

Alice Possani

Passionate about theater since she was 12 years old. A Scorpio who likes cats and acarajé (a traditional Brazilian snack). Tirelessly stretches the carpets in the house (which insist on curling up), and in the last ten years has slowly improved her skills as a mother. Hates the cold and states this out loud repeatedly throughout the winter. Likes the beach and sunny mornings.

Erika Cunha

Erika Cunha is an actress, researcher, and curious about the human body. Transits between the anatomical body (studying its movements) and the political body (the body in the social relationship), me meeting myself and me meeting the world (between the world inside and outside!). She is also a doula, umbandista (of an Afro-Brazilian religion), loves animals, loves cheese, bread and coffee, has been practicing vegetarianism for over 20 years, and is an incessant learner in how to plant/treat the earth (in which she admits that she is not always successful, but keeps trying).
