The hero of Macunaima travels with little heed for either logic or geography, retracing the footsteps of a people and indeed an entire civilization. Mysterious transformations, legends and mythological animals appear as distant yet familiar figures. When it comes to life, anything and everything is possible.


“When it first toured Europe, Macunaima was applauded by the critics as the best South American production in the last ten years.” -Paul Imhof, Schweizer Illustrierte, Zurich, Switzerland.
