We Have A Situation!

Meeting the Carioca(s)

29/10/2015 by Helen

I’ve arrived in Rio de Janerio to prepare for our “situation”, taking place next week as part of the Multicidade International Festival of Women in Theatre. It’s my first visit to Rio, so as well as preparations I’m fitting in a little bit of sightseeing before what will be a very busy week. On Monday, we will start the workshop to create the performance; there are 5 local participants, and the online team will join as time zones allow. View the pictures →

However, the pollution of Guanabara Bay isn’t a new problem, and its impact is much greater than a one-off sports event. Many communities’ livelihoods are based on and around the bay, and of course all life is dependent on clean water.

Remember those protests we heard about, before and during the 2014 world cup in Brasil? Do you know what they were all about,┬áif anything was achieved, or if social unrest continues? I’ve been invited to create a “situation” in Rio de Janiero, so I’m starting to look at what’s going on there these days – and I’ve discovered there’s a situation brewing in the water.
