Stop Talking Badly About Routine
Celebrating 20 years in theaters, the show PAREM DE FALAR MAL DA ROOTINA brings together stories lived and heard by Elisa Lucinda, as a good observer of everyday life, in addition to poems taken from her books, such as “O Similar” and “Eu te amo e sua premieres” ”. The result is just over two hours of praise for the routine among different characters, forcing us to observe ourselves from the outside, and helping us to realize that “the routine” is something fictitious that we create. The conclusion is that we have the power of change, we are the directors, actors and producers of our own lives.
In an interactive way, it proposes a fun reflection on everyday life. Using verses and casual conversations about routine, it is a kind of mirror capable of projecting a thousand possibilities, causing real transformations in our social, professional and personal relationships. “The play was born from the countless lessons that nature teaches us every day. The great lesson is the ability to debut that makes everything in nature happen in a spectacular way, day-by-day: sunrise, sunset, the sky, the rain, the stars, the winds and the afternoons. Nature teaches everyone, but sometimes, distracted students that we are, we don't see the beautiful obvious that it offers us and the tips it can give us in the conduct of our daily lives”, says the actress.
De-litizing poetry, Elisa speaks the poetic text as if talking to the public, moving people of all kinds, from ten to a hundred years old, and amusing with her words. An intelligent self-help, a citizenship class through emotional education, because by taking better care of our routine, authors and protagonists that we are in it, we will take better care of ourselves, those around us and the world around us.
