the extra 2016

The monologue, with Pedro Henrique Müller, tells the ironic story of an actor who, against his own desire, ends up becoming an extra. From this moment, the play points to a cyclical abyss of metalanguage and repetition, resulting from an investigation of the effects of recursion (in particular the Droste Effect, the repetition of a smaller image within the image itself) in theatrical creation. Thus and so, the extra is invited to act in a play called “The Extra” which tells the story of an extra who is invited to act in a play called “The Extra” and so on.

The play debuted in Rio de Janeiro (Brazil) in July 2016.
