Patrick Campbell

Research output: Contribution to ConferencePaper

Abstract

This paper focuses on the way in which renowned São Paulo-based theatre company Teatro Oficina Uzyna Uzona challenges and deconstructs hegemonic concepts of subjectivity in their 2000 - 2007 25 hour-long production of Euclides da Cunha’s seminal Brazilian novel Os sertões (“Rebellion in the Backlands”), and how this radical re-writing of the subject has a profound effect on the internal structures of the performance text itself.
