Abstract

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.
