PaperBack (06 Nov 2008)

The village of Todos Os Santos is under threat from developers who want to clear the village and the forest for farmland. Meanwhile, the village bull won't dance the traditional bumba meu boi and the pregnant Catarina has developed a taste for impossible foods that her husband Francisco must get for her. Can the spirits of the forest help our heroes save their environment, their way of life, and themselves?

Fantasy and reality dance through this spectacular Amazonian adventure, inspired by the life and politics of Brazilian folk hero Chico Mendes.

Amazonia ran at the Young Vic Theatre, London in the Winter 2008-2009.
