Bispo a Sêco is a solo show, starring João Miguel, inspired by the life and work of Brazilian artist Arthur Bispo do Rosário, who lived for about 40 years in a psychiatric hospital in Rio de Janeiro. On stage, accompanied by Ângelo Santiago musicians and Sidney Argolo, João Miguel mixes Bispo’s words with the most modern aspects of contemporary theater, proposing a union of various languages to dialogue with the work created by Bispo.

The project promoted a northeast tour of “O Campo de Batalha”. On stage, in a supposed World War III caused by the dispute over the planet’s waters, two enemy soldiers are surprised by the announcement of a temporary suspension of the war. During the war break, the two enemies begin a surreal closeness that puts at risk the protocol continuity of the “official” combats.

The production proposes a forum for discussion about the body and its autonomy in contemporary society. The structure of the work-collage seeks to give space to subjectivities and identities that overflow the body through the elements of dance, theater, and performance, taking inspiration from the writings of Beauvoir and other studies on the body, the female body, desire, the media, and pop culture — as well as from the actresses-performers’ personal stories.
