about 

In Brazil, the coming to power of an alliance between neo-fascism and the wildest liberalism is resulting in the accelerated dismantling of public policies and institutions that took many years to be built. Brazil Hijacked is an initiative that seeks to give visibility to this situation and, at the same time, support the creation and exhibition of works by Brazilian artists who are being severely affected by the crisis that the country is experiencing.

Artists participating are Ricardo Marinelli, Zahy Guajajara, Alice Ripoll / Cia REC, Calixto Neto  and Wellington Gadelha. Brazil Hijacked was created by curators Eduardo Bonito and Isabel Ferreira thanks to the support of Festival Grec 2020 - Antic Teatre (Barcelona) and has been presented in events such as Festival de la Cité, Tanz im August, Zuercher Theater aSpektakle, Festival de la Batie, FIT - Festival Iberoamericano de Teatro and others .

​In addition to the performative talks, Brazil Hijacked also brings together works by artists such as Luiz de Abreu (O Samba do Crioulo Doido featured by Calixto Neto) and Azkona & Toloza (Teatro Amazonas) who strongly dialogue with the current socio-political context that the country is experiencing.
