Ainda Marianas

The scenography of Ainda Marianas was developed according to two fundamental vectors: enclosure corresponding to the norm established in the space and the Feminine agent as a form or destabilizing element of the space.
The idea of cloisteredness, transversal to the dictatorial era, was worked through the game of successive vertical lines in wood, giving not only an idea of verticality necessary to the seriousness and seclusion of a court, but also a denunciation of all kinds of cloisters that women were affected by.
The feminine appears as a contrasting and destabilizing element, symbolically synthesized in the form of an inverted triangle worked in copper. The original shape of the table, suspended only by a point, creates a constant frenzy or imminent rupture of the established norm, as a denunciation or disquiet.
