Based on true events, it shows the conflicts involving deaf people who are part of the deaf community using Brazilian Sign Language (also called “Libras”). The play is set in the “City of God” slum, a place beset with violence and danger and shows it through the visual language of deaf Brazilians. Here, a small boy grows up and despite the violence surrounding him, he dreams of becoming a singer and performing on stage in the favela. Through his story we see how he and others around him, deal with the frequent killings in a place where crime is the only way to survive. We also see how the other young deaf boys take part in the criminal way of life that surrounds them. City of God is about “how to live in the Deaf community” in a play presented from the perspective of Deaf culture.

Adapted for the stage and without words, this abounding closed-room, had become a sort of monomania No sign, word nor pantomime but a gestural and masked theater.
Where intentions, pace, precision and movement expression give meaning. This free adaptation respects the initial dramatic structure, with a return in the past of the two protagonists, Czentovic the champion and the enigmatic M. B.

One man show
The Talk Show LIVE with John Maucere shoots in front of a live studio audience, and each episode of the daily show opens with John's monologue or story based on his life and the day's events in entertainment and politics. From there, John takes his seat behind the desk for a comedy piece. This may be performed at the desk itself, or he may introduce a produced short video piece. After that, John will bring out his first guest for an interview and possibly a game, activity, or comedy bit. Time permitting, a second guest would follow, and then the show would wrap up with a final performance from a singer, dancer, or other act.
