The performance of Companhia Nova de Teatro is inspired by characters such as Kassandra, Hecuba, Prometheus and Hercules, the play focuses on human crises, migratory flows, refugees, the devastation of the territory of native peoples in Amazônia (Brazil) and Africanity. "The concept of progress has been transferred from the idea of shared improvement to that of individual survival", which intensifies the current conflict of the individual in society. In this sense, the idea of crisis is increasingly present in our society. There is no way to understand the present without accompanying human development throughout history. In this sense, the Companhia Nova de Teatro, plunges into the Greek tragedy and
seeks in it the reflexes and the very essence of man to understand, discuss and reflect on the various meanings of the crisis today, under the voices of these women and men – such rich and complex mythical characters.
