Performing Arts



ZDB returns to collaborate with Tiago Barbosa, producing and presenting his second staging at NEGÓCIO. Tiago’s work, based on the actor’s practice, is distinguished by generosity and selflessness. The ability to generate and manipulate disturbing states of emotion brings us to the theatrical experience in its essence.
HI, I AM SANTA CLAUS comes from an individual portrait – which moves us through the sharing of anguish and private concerns – to reach a reflection on global questions, such as the act of giving and the economy in society, and the commerce in stake in the performative act.
