Musician, mime artist, dancer, actor, street performer...Brazilian Antonio Nobrega defies labels and defines a new kind of art that takes its cues from commedia dell'arte
and his own native Brazilian dance, music and myth. In this captivating one man show, Nobrega creates characters ranging from a defiant shaman to a sashaying chanteuse, using masks, mime and music. Nobrega is the self-styled saviour of Brazilian culture who has seduced and enthralled audiences from Avignon to Washington. In Figural
he melds the colour and vivacity of Brazilian street parties with their rich performance heritage to create a magical experience.Performers Antonio Nobrega.
