“2036, P. wakes up to the deafening sound of an emergency alarm. There's nothing around you but an intense haze of smoke. Without knowing who she is, she looks for answers, but the only person who can provide them is A., the author of her story who lives immersed in deep despair with the imminent extinction of Humanity caused by the eruption of the Yellowstone volcano.”
Aquário, by Marlene Barreto, makes use of capitalism, power relations, oppression and contamination, to talk about the loss of the sense of humanity. Taking this apocalyptic point of view as a starting point, the graphic image for the play was based on the cold colors and the mystery that populates Marlene Barreto’s entire narrative.
