Teatro de Amazônia

Presenting a performance of tales of Amazônia, full of music, mystery, strange beings and human follies.

Teatro de Amazõnia 07 January 2008

Sometimes you get lucky as a photographer. On this night, the community was presenting a theater of tales from Amazônia at the Salão do Cipô in the forest clearing now lit by torch light. Into this setting there arrived shamanic energies, human follies, romance, enchantments and strange beings somehow all mixed up together into a performance that delighted everyone.

I could not follow the plot-lines at all, and the flash on my camera was somehow set incorrectly so that I had to really "push" the images later in the computer. But the results were fantastic, much better than anything I might have gotten "correctly." I really can't tell you much (anything really) about the story line but I believe the images somehow capture it without words.
