Dozens of men and women formally dressed, blindfolded and covered in mud, walk slowly, poetically interfering in the flow of the city. "BLIND" is a work open to different readings: the reducing of our existence to the productive function and consumption, overwork, imprisonment and petrification of life, the automation of everyday life, and the ethical degeneration that spreads in the current state of society. The interaction of the performers with spaces that symbolizes the political and financial axis causes critical estrangement in the urban landscape. The shock visual of petrification of bodies, alienated behavior and extreme slowness of movement, instigate a reflection about the various forms of blindness, as well as the impoverishment of human experience due to the increasing of commercialization of art and bodies. First held in 2012, attended the Program Palco Giratório, circled by 29 cities from all regions of Brazil, as well as Europe and USA. In 2017, "BLIND" embarks for Europe presenting on the Imaginarius - International Street Theater Festival of Santa Maria da Feira, Portugal, in Zurich, Switzerland and Berlin, Germany.
