by Fernando José Saraiva
Balleteatrinho is a workshop where participants are invited to experience the movement and the interpretation of a narrative, a story, a plastic work or a song. It is a workshop of awareness and introduction to the world of dance and theater, through games of creativity and imagination. At the end of the session, the parents are invited to watch the results of the workshop in a small piece presented by the participants. In this issue we propose the story of an alternative family from the language of animation cinema.
