1 Dialogs: Is this place a theater or a workshop? Where are we? I am the Brazilian theater From life the real mirror Come here, Marcelo. Dancing in this Carnaval With my art that is immortal! Welcome to the Workshop Theater. [2007 BRASÍLIA] I have this workshop since January 2 nd, In 1967 I had 75 employees. But when I had work I arrived 5 a.m. and worked till midnight. Now I don t have that much work. or enthusiasm. I started to work when I was 8,
2 my whole family worked. My father was very poor, although a great carpenter. Nine children. Then We started to work very young. [ZÉ PERDIZ] Profession, I had to learn everything by myself. I was cane broth man, ice cream man, conductor of ox car, truck driver s assistant I was even a communist for a while. The politicized person suffers because he sees things happening and many times he can t do anything about it. The one who is not politicized doesn t have this problem.
3 The politicized and non politicized person is like a husband who is being cheated and doesn t know. When I joined the communist youth, I was almost 20 years old, I hoped to do something for Brazil, for the less favored class. When the supervisor said the word I told him: When are you going to give me the rifle? And he said: What rifle? They are talking about making the revolution and I ll fight with no gun? I d have to have courage to kill my Brazilian brothers and to die by their hands. We were here when Brasília was being built, it wasn t ready.
4 Then we came back many times, one of those times was the most important. just after A.I.-5. In Brazil, at that moment, there were 2 options, because the dictatorship was unbearable: armed fight or madness. The armed fight was over and I turned to madness. I don t regret it for a minute. It was wonderful. Madness allowed me to complete a revolution in my body, in my mind. Our fight was made through the theater.  [Montage of Os Sertões ] [Workshop Theater, São Paulo]
5 [Zé Celso fulfills a thirty-year old dream]  For God sake! [Montage of José, what now ] [The play recreates Zé Perdiz biography] [The actor Gê Martú plays Zé Perdiz] Zé Perdiz, this is Zé Celso. Ah, Zé! Good evening. Give me a hug. Two Zés hugging each other. That s crazy. It s crazy but is a reality. Let me see you, let me get closer That s it.
6 We ve gotta have positive vibrations, right? When we made the workshop, the idea was of theater like workshop, that demands hard work. Then it became work of Plant. Then you get the party, then there is joy. Bravo! Zé Perdiz. Congratulations. Thank you. Congrats for you too. My greetings to your beautiful yard, I bow to it, I am going to do it right here. It s a sacred place. Nobody touches it. We can t let anybody touch it. The idea that to make theater we ve got to have a place
7 is almost gone. A theater is just like a machine shop. You have to work hard, to rehearse Get the body, put it on an anvil, and beat it, beat it, mold it So that our symbol is an anvil. Screw is screw. It s to touch sex in the sex. The screw of the screw, screw, screw. Come in now! The T, turn on of the theater. The screw of the screw, screw, screw. If I m here working, he is there In the subtext somebody is talking to him And obviously the attitude of the actor is other
8 Every worker working within his area is an artist. PEDRO DALDEGAN ART DIRECTOR - Here is 3 meters - Three. And the diagonal is 5 One is more forward, the other further back Then they don t meet Exactly. The deceased Ivan Marques, who was the son of my ex-wife s sister, came to Brasilia when he was a little boy. He started to rehearse plays here. They studied at Dulcina and didn t have a place to rehearse. We were very good friends. He was a fantastic person, a great actor. Unfortunately he passed away
9 early. In 1988, Mangueira Diniz asked for the space to present Waiting Godot. It started in March 10 th, 1989, a Friday. and didn t stop anymore. GODOT IN THE WORKSHOP INCREASE OF AWARDS FOR THE GROUP FROM BRASILIA MASKS AND GREASE Is this place a theater or a workshop? Where are we? Mr. Perdiz, is this a theather or a workshop? - Can I answer it? -Sure I m asking you. During the day is a workshop, welding, lathe and other things. At night who makes theater does whatever they want of the space.
10 Antonio Conselheiro! It s natural, it s natural, it s natural That from these ethnical layers Emerged an anticline extraordinary! Antonio Conselheiro! The summarized life of a man. An instantaneous chapter of the humanity history. My fragile consciousness fluctuates around a middle position between common sense and insanity. I am not a misunderstood person! The crowd cheers me as representative of their highest aspirations. Antonio Conselheiro was Antonio Conselheiro is
11 a Gnostic, rude, subject to pain, death and love. I can not be a character except for my character. I only know how to be myself as a character. I m going to ask you something. Shoot. You really own the word because you speak very well. You are an actor that has the domain of art, and the domain of the social problems of Brazil. Oh, no! You are exaggerating. You do! Of art I do but of the problems of Brazil I don t. If you want to get away from it,
12 that s your problem. We all have obligations and you do too. I do, sure. If you didn t have, you wouldn t be doing what you do. Sure. The guys who make theater here want the legalization of this space. They claim that the registration of heritage of humanity doesn t allow it. Why? Is Brasília registered by humanity? In the middle of humanity can t you have this? You have to register something that goes on, lives. Register life. You want to register it, register but with this concept. Register but don t get me down!
13 On the contrary, get me up! What got me upset and bitter was the space vanishing. It s struggle of economic interests. It s a fight of economic interests, the bigger always stepping on the smaller. In São Paulo Silvio Santos! You are not going to destroy our theater, are you Silvio Santos? He went there, love it and then disappeared. He has to show up again. Now he started to demolish all around it. I hope he demolishes everything so we can make our own Wheel of Fortune there. Our dream is that the government legalizes it so we can make a
14 [Area of the new Workshop Theater Zé Perdiz] work, offering theater classes or music classes. The Brazilian politician doesn t realize that the richness of the Brazilian culture can turn him into a great politician. Brazilian culture is power, culture is power, art is power. What is theater for you? Funny. You asked me a hell of a question. I may be able to answer it. [Zé Perdiz played by Gê Martu] The idea is to put some grandstands and present a play. It s ok by me. You are insane, Mr Artaud! Then the mass! The theater is a life parallel to reality.
15 Real things go to theater, things that the theater presents go back to reality. Living rock. Brazilian. In this resistant being always coming back.
