The Pig Opera prompts a reflection on the ultimately deleterious greed and dominance exercised by a few small groups of people.
Through different angles, it creates a relationship between pigs, humans and the spectator.It includes the unique symbolic features that pigs have carried throughout human history.

It finds links between the early 20th century and the early 21st through feelings evoked by these works: “Animal Farm” by George Orwell, “Ultimatum” by Álvaro de Campos, and “Ballad on Approving of the World” by Bertolt Brecht

It looks at pigs from different angles; e.g. as a glutton or as a symbol of Brazilian gastronomy represented in the feijoada.

It reflects on the erasing of boundaries, be they territories or the perimeter of our own bodies.It also suggests reflections on how prone we are to lose control over things.In a rather ingenuous though provocative way, it suggests that art and culture may triumph over “the forces of evil”.
