We can say that Pedro is a social activist. He is always promoting shows in the streets or with affordable tickets, and raising questions of social order of the country in the texts he chooses to work. This week he presents the playStrong Beats, which deals with topics such as homophobia, machismo and self-affirmation, in the São Paulo Cultural Center. Another example is the staging of Nelson Rodrigues' The Kiss on Asphalt, Roosevelt Square and other open spaces.

Not to mention the work in the Small Act, headquarters of the Cia do Feijão, an open space for new works, intimate scenarios and close to the audience, which receives, in addition to the pieces, workshops and rehearsals. And in MOTIN, a movement created by independent theaters of the city that aims to discuss its public cultural activity and its identity in front of the population.

We did a little Rapid with him:

Uia: What's the good in Sao Paulo?
Pedro Granato: Like the city without a car.

Uia: And a stolen?
PG: Pick up a car and stay in traffic, with so much bike path and places to take advantage.

Uia: A soundtrack for São Paulo.
PG:You can have a soundtrack for each day in São Paulo. You can see a show of MPB, rock, rap. I think the pulse of rap mixes a lot with São Paulo, but it's a multiple city.

Uia: What was the last show you saw in the city?
PG:Baiana System. Unmissable. Whenever I have I'll be there. The ones at Rincon Sapienza also.

Uia: And the last movie you watched?
PG: I have a list of movies to watch. This is catching on more than the last I saw. There are some 10 movies I want to see.

Uia: What makes you sleep in SP?
PG: Theatrical assemblies, eves, the political crisis and sometimes these thousands of simultaneous events that leave us a thousand.

Uia: Any solution to go back to sleep in peace?
PG: The first thing is to restore democracy in the country in fact. Have a free, clean election with a president who is elected by the majority, and not by a parliamentary coup.

Uia: A face and / or voice for Sao Paulo.
PG: The voice is Mano Brown. He has the accent, the bell. "A heart wounded per square meter." I think he defined the city well.
Face, I really like the faces in the Sumare station. I think the grace of St. Paul is precisely to be many faces. Many phenotypes, many breeds, many crosses, many different origins.

Uia: A sight you'd like to see in the city.
PG: I wanted very much to see and to make the Clandestine Country, the piece that I made in Buenos Aires and still I could not bring to São Paulo, but that soon will be here.

Uia: Which neighborhood would you honor in a song?
PG: I do not know if a neighborhood, but Roosevelt Square and Minhocão, when they are full of people, for me that is a unique face of Sao Paulo. I think it yields beautiful music.

Uia: A phrase that defines São Paulo.
PG: "But with all defect, I carry you in my chest" (Tom Zé)

* This Tuesday (30 / 1), Pedro announced on his Facebook page that the show will be part of the MITsp - International Theater Show this year. He will be on the scene along with four other directors: Lucia Miranda (Spain), Jorge Eiro (Argentina), Florencia Lindner (Uruguay) and Maelle Poesy (France). There will be only three presentations in Brazil, 9, 10 and 11 days of March. Put it on the agenda!
