TEATRO

MUNGANGA

From Brazil originating theater group

From Brazil originating theater group Munganga (pronounced: moen-gang-gaa) is a Brazilian word, derived from Mganga, a tribe in Africa. The priests of this tribe make great and exuberant gestures during their rituals. Their way of communicating consists of expressive faces, grimaces and dancing.
Since its founding in 1987, Teatro Munganga has given the visual language a major role in its performances. By mixing and combining theatre with music, dance and puppetry, the theater group wants to show the poetry of life. The miracle of the everyday. Theatre group Munganga deals with universal themes, in which different cultures and their contrasts form the most important guideline in the projects.
“During our 30-year existence we have create performances with a critical view of society and as artists we are aware of our influence in the world. Our involvement with people regardless of their social class or origin extends beyond the theatre stage. In addition to performing in theaters, we also develop projects for schools, retirement homes, asylum seekers’ centers, psychiatric institutions and other non-conventional stages. In June 2013, we launched ‘Busganga’ (the theater on wheels) and in June 2014 we opened the doors of CASA Munganga; a charming and cozy theatre in the southern part of Amsterdam. Besides presenting the theatre’s own performances, we share a stage with other artists, activists and dreamers. A new phase.”

The theatre group has already made numerous performances. Currently, Teatro Munganga performs with the performance ‘Piet and the brother of the Moon’ in the Busganga. For more information see Bus/Program Busganga.
