In 2011, Brazilian theatre group Ói Nóis Aqui Traveiz staged an environmental production of Ariel Dorfman’s play Widows on an island that held political prisoners during the country’s military regime. In Viúvas-Performance sobre a ausência, Ói Nóis Aqui Traveiz, one of the most politically engaged theatre groups in the country, discloses relationships between disappearance, memory, and resistance in both politics and performance.
