Cosmos is the second part of a trilogy under construction. An interplanetary journey, where a treasure is searched for the creation of a new world. On this trip, it will be impossible not to question humanity and the path taken until today. From the individual to the collective, from the micro to the macro, the show intends to deepen the mythologies that surround the creation of the world. An epic where time and space are confused. Through the rescue of African mythology and its mixture with European myths, Cosmos is projected into an Afrofuturist horizon, while questioning whether we are just the fruits of the stories we are told. Every Griot carries as a destiny not to let his story die.
Aurora Negra is the collective created by Cleo Tavares, Isabél Zuaa and Nádia Yracema. The three are formed by ESTC (Escola Superior de Teatro e Cinema), following a parallel path in acting for Theater and Cinema, nationally and internationally. Aurora Negra is born from the realization of the invisibility to which black bodies are subject in the performing arts and intends to give voice to these bodies. Cosmos is the second joint project of the three authors.
