Zoé, criminal innocence. Life one and without form, radical, savage.


Leaflet deconstructed in seven acts, where it shows how a girl born in the jungle became the queen of the early mornings in the streets of São Paulo, until she became a terrible murderer locked up in a psychiatric hospital, redeemed by the puppets.

Visual show with diverse and surprising scenic magic: live painting, glove and bunraku puppets, Chinese shadows, light animation, object manipulation, video and other exquisite effects.


SYNOPSIS OF THE STORY: At the beginning the Puppeteer explains that he met Zoé during a puppet show in a psychiatric hospital in Sao Paulo. The girl talked with the puppets making sounds of jungle birds. Then, in small fragments, we learn that he was born in the jungle, from where he left fleeing a fire, went to the city and made his life at night and in the streets, until Saloio, a trafficker, built a house for him with garden and air conditioning. But one bad day, the traffic, the heat, the sexual urgency, the misunderstandings and other trifles, triggered the tragedy and Saloio was killed with an instrument that the girl did not even know how it worked: an electric knife. Zoé got lost in the crowd, naked, smeared with blood and makeup and lived on the streets, under a pile of newsprint, without talking to anyone. The police picked her up and took her to the hospital, they never linked her to the murder of the trafficker. To finish, Zoé explains that she met the Puppeteer at the hospital function and when she saw that he was the only one capable of putting the devil in a bag, she dressed up as a beauty and went with him. Now they travel around the world and are happy.
