The musical “Marrom”, is in São Paulo, at the Sérgio Cardoso Theater, paying
tribute to Alcione’s 50-year career anniversary. The show is directed by Miguel Falabella and produced by actor and director Jô Santana. To tell the story of her career, the script uses her origins in the state of Maranhão, mixing the
artist’s story of determination with one of the myths about the “Boi Maranhão”, which talks about the resistance of enslaved people.
In addition to the cast, costumes play a key role in the presentation. The highlight is that each piece of embroidery was produced in Marrom’s hometown by her countrywomen. During the month of July, Jô Santana and the team of costume designers Lígia Rocha, Jemima Tuany and Marco Pacheco were at São Luís Women’s Prison Unit, in Maranhão, managing a creative workshop with 15 women from the social cooperative supported by the Humanitas360 Institute to produce the embroidery that are present in each piece during the musical. The president of H360, Patrícia Villela Marino, met with Alcione in 2019 and the singer happily accepted the invitation to be the godmother of Maranhão’s social cooperative.
