In the year 2050, the city of Rio de Janeiro has become an independent and chaotic kingdom, ruled by an insane monarch and his Machiavellian ministry. In a desperate journey to the past "the peacemakers" try to prevent the city from the severe misfortunes of the future.
This imaginative fictional theme is the plot of The Future is Now a play by Ricardo Blat, directed by Ernesto Piccolo, which opened on November 9 at The Laura Alvim Cultural House in Rio de Janeiro.
The play succeeds in reaching out to the teenage audience, the characteristic style of The Laura Alvim Cultural House.
The Future is Now produced by Cristiana Maia and Ronaldo Cerrone, stars Diogo Serrao Costa, Marcia De Paoli and Helaine Rios.
Founded in 1986, The Laura Alvim Cultural House has covered various themes of artistic expression over the years. The House also offers courses in theatre for aspiring young actors and, because of that always has a "teen atmosphere". A good example of this was the Maria Mariana hit "Teenagers Confessions" which started its successful trajectory there. At the moment, the three floors of the House accommodates a theatre, a movie gallery, an auditorium, stores and bars. With the support of the Cultural Municipal Department of Rio de Janeiro a cinema and an open air space for expositions and meetings will be inaugurated soon.
Tickets cost R$15,00. Performances on Sun - 8PM
