Extending itself this communication for all society and those interested in the cultural development of this city and of course the Municipal Secretary of Culture of São Paulo.
The year 2019, marks the 12 years of existence of O LUGAR, headquarters of Cia Corpos Nomades located in Baixo Augusta -São Paulo – SP – Brazil, in front of the Augusta Park.
PLACE where hundreds of contemporary artists from the Theater, Dance, Performance, Literature and Music of São Paulo capital and the interior and other states of Brazil, as well as from Taiwan, the United States, France, England, Portugal, Greece, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, the Netherlands, Chile, Argentina, Colombia and Mexico.
PLACE where there are intense and linked actions: the formation, the creation and the diffusion, through the Seasons of the Cia.

However, now in 2019, the PLACE is in the midst of this moral, civic and cultural dismantling, completely without any contribution, since May 2018. Now, for activities to continue, some answers are activities scheduled in those 12 years of resistance will continue and whether or not they will be able to multiply.
A meeting was called in January / 2019 with the newly-sworn Secretary of Culture Mr. Youssef to discuss this situation, but no response has yet been received. It is hoped that an answer will be made as soon as possible and that due attention is given to this situation. In these 12 years all the Municipal Secretaries of Culture of SP, were attentive and answered promptly the requests of meetings and doubts, that both the Cia. Corpos Nômades and the Scenic Space THE PLACE had. The same is expected to occur in this management.
Therefore, the moment is to wait to know if the whole program of this PLACE will be interrupted definitively, thus closing an important space for the contemporary arts in the city of São Paulo or if we give continuity and we will continue in full steam.
Videos of some shows held in the THE PLACE.
