BIO

carlos concilio.jpeg

I am a theatre director, playwright and actor. I have been working in the city of São Paulo (Brazil) since 2005 where I have developed dozens of artistic projects with the most different creators. Since 2020 I live in the city of Lyon (France) and I would like to continue my artistic research in contemporary theatre. My formation is in theater and dance, but my creations and artistic partners demonstrate my hybrid and unquiet poetics. 
In the pandemic context in which the theatre found itself fragile to deal with the real presence, my new projects move towards the understanding of grief. Mourning as an ethical and political act, an act of memory and recognition. The tragedy of COVID-19 deaths in Brazil is twofold, it lies both in the disregard for life and in the contempt toward the dead, expressed in the absence of a demonstration of public mourning.

The urgency of bringing to light the politics of death perpetrated by current Brazilian politicians is a fundamental part of my new theatrical projects.
