Infinite While it Lasts is a physical theatre play inspired by the works and life of the acclaimed Brazilian poet and composer Vinicius de Moraes in honor of his centennial. It is a site specific production taking place in Nublu (62 Avenue C, New York NY). The audience will lounge around enjoying typical Brazilian food and drinks while surrounded by poetry, dance and live music in a style reminiscent of a bohemian Brazil. Performed in Portuguese with English supertitles, Infinite While it Lasts is an immersion into the life and love through Vinicius' eyes. Vinicius is well known for being a catalyst for the bossa nova and composing the majority of the genre's iconic hits such as Girl from Ipanema, No More Blues (Chega de Saudade) and many others.

Why we want to do this show
Vinicius has touched so many people's hearts with his poetry almost entirely dedicated to love. Love for his family, love for his friends, love for his partners, love for his lovers, love for art, love for life, LOVE. He was a man that lived fully and had his doors and heart wide open at all the times. He chose to face his fears and to be true to himself and his feelings in every moment of his life. We feel very inspired by his life, personality and his work. With no shadow of doubt we have become more open give and receive love since we started working on this show. We can't wait to share this great feeling.
