mala voadora and Teatro Oficina collaborated to produce two shows: (1) Marcos Barbosa directed Jorge Andrade in Will Eno’s monologue Título e Escritura, and (2) actors brought in by both companies joined Jorge Andrade to direct Don DeLillo’s A Sala Branca.

The protagonist of Título e Escritura appears on stage as a traveller who, in his wandering, encounters the audience of the room. He explores this situation. He wanders through whatever he can think of at the moment, especially his own past. He confronts the audience in front of him with his supposed biography. He confronts them with memories that aren’t happy. He self-flagellates. The discourse keeps moving between the rhetoric of representation proper to those playing a ‘role’ (the supposed verisimilitude of the character) and the rhetoric of non-representation (the supposed verisimilitude of the actor being himself). The show ends and we don’t know what journey he’s on that brought him to the theatre.
