Maratona de Manifestos  (Manifest Marathon) is a performance inspired by the curatorial work of Hans Ulrich Obrist. Seven actors read different manifests written after the year 2000. This is a site-specific performance that adjusts to different spaces. The audience are given a map of the place where the performance takes place, so that they’re able to track every actor, and thus choose which manifests to listen to. Each manifest is read in an intimate manner and only for a small group of spectators, so as to counter the traditional way of reading a manifest, which tends to be pamphleteering. The actors engage in the “conversation” based on reality the atmosphere in the room, the architecture/structure of the place and the audience. This performance intends to convey conscious words that address the world of today, messages of hope and/or complaint, worldly and day-to-day words
