Hominus Brasilis tells the story of humanity in an unique way: four actors use their bodies and vocal sound effects to recreate history’s most important chapters on a 5′ by 3′ platform with no scenery or props. Cia. de Teatro Manual was born in 2010 when actors Helena Marques and Matheus Lima were awarded a Funarte Exchange Residence in Performing Arts and traveled to London to attend the Professional Development Program at the London International School of Performing Arts. Upon their return to Brazil, they were joined by actors Patricia Ubeda and Dio Cavalcanti and began a practical research on physicality, the use of voice, theatre of images and devising theater. In 2014 the company debuts “Hominus Brasilis”. Due to the show’s success, the Cia de Teatro Manual was invited to be part of a TV program called “Chroniclers of Rio” for which they recreate, theatrically, a column written by a guest columnist.
