The show by Os Ciclomáticos Companhia de Teatro, written and directed by Ribamar Ribeiro, brings Brazilian popular culture to the fore in this production. The director immersed himself in the universe of popular theater, medieval farces and Brazilian festivals to tell the traditional story of Catirina and the language of the ox. In this universe, Ribamar Ribeiro also researched the popular tales of Câmara Cascudo, creating his own contemporary universe in staging. The objective of this new show, which is the tenth in the repertoire of Companhia Os Ciclomáticos, is to enchant children and adults through popular stories and thus re-dimensioning this popular context in a universal way.


The story revolves around a rich farmer who has a very beautiful ox. Pai Chico, farm worker, to satisfy his wife Catirina, who is pregnant and wants to eat the ox's tongue. Pai Chico brings the ox's tongue and the confusion is formed. And in addition to the story of the ox, the plot also features short stories by the folklorist Câmara Cascudo.
