Based on the book Carandiru Station by Drauzio Varella, Salmo 91 tells the story of 10 men in Pavilion 9, where 111 inmates were killed by authorities. The Carandiru massacre was the bloodiest ever perpetrated in Brazil’s prison system. The play is not a realistic account of the massacre and focuses instead on the life of marginal inmates. The director conceptualizes it as an anti-play and relies on the actors to fill out a metaphorical set, designed by José Dias, winner of the Morliere, Shell and Mambembe awards, among others. This is the second Brazilian staging of the play written by Dib Carneiro Neto, recipient of the 2008 Shell Award.
