Whoever was in Paraty during FLIP had the opportunity to visit the Chapel of Our Lady of Sorrows, a colonial church built in 1800 that was completely transformed and re-signified to receive the Shakespeare House.
The initiative was one of the highlights of the Shakespeare Lives international program of the British Council, which celebrated the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death throughout 2016.
During five days the House received an intense program of debates, workshops, theater and cinema, with names like Lis Calder, Irvine Welsh, Rodrigo Lacerda, Ronaldo Marin, Marici Solomon and Pedro Bial. .
The public still had the opportunity to watch Shakespeare’s performance Books to Survive with Diego Bagagal, visit the library created and dubbed Romeo and Juliet, produced with 1000 paper flowers made by local artisans .
The nave of the chapel was transformed into an exhibition space and debates, which housed sculptures by local ceramist and artist Dalcir Ramiro, and the aerial sculpture inspired by The Tempest created by the Office of Art.
The facade received the characters of Shakespeare, made of papier maché by local artist David Cananéa.
Even the columbarium style cemetery was left out, it was transformed into a living space with an open air cinema and a tea house to welcome the audience during the event.
