This piece represents the classic fall of a celestial being in front of a vagabond. The story takes place in a cemetery, where the Angel will create a home. Through this character, we enter an ambivalent world of dreams, curses and revelations. Is the angel a companion, a messenger, a judge?
Angel has conquered the hearts of 27 countries and continues to tour and accumulate prizes.


Bastard is a loose adaptation of "L'arrache - coeur". Just like Boris Vian, who had to invent new words to describe a wild and fascinating adventure, Duda Paiva expands its trademark in theater language through privileged movements, a skilled use of objects, dance elements, and remarkable visual effects. This piece is set in a strange and grim future. Bastard gives life to a series of extraordinary characters who help a lost artist during his journey of self-discovery.

Break a Legend

This piece is a collection of hilarious dance scenes with human-sized puppets. A fresh, vigorous and contemporary cabaret that charms as though it were an experience never seen before.
