***** This year's SCUDD conference and AGM: Workshop Theatre, Leeds, 7-8 April 2006  ******



Dear Sir/Madam,

Dende Collective is presenting a new and exciting piece of theatre at the 
Lyric Hammersmith, Dona Flor and her Two Husbands based on the homonimous 
novel by the Brazilian writer Jorge Amado for 3 weeks from 15th March 2006 
to 1st April. Dende Collective is offering a range of flexible educational 
packages and a resource pack for teachers (available from mid-February on 
our website). I am writing to discuss the posibility of finding the most 
appropiate workshop for your students.

About the Company Dende Collective was created in 1999 and is a London-based 
company, producing shows linked to Brazilian culture (‘TWO LOST SOULS’, was 
a translation of a Brazilian play; ‘VIVA MARIA!’ dealt with Brazilian 
themes; ‘THE PIRANHA LOUNGE’ was based on short stories by Murilo Rubiao and 
inaugurated a style of creating work which is diverse/ Brazilian in its 
process – mixing styles and cultures which was followed by ‘ONEFOURSEVEN’), 
and works using different theatrical elements, languages and cultures which 
combined live together to create highly inclusive theatre.

About the show The production of DONA FLOR AND HER TWO HUSBANDS has a strong 
bilingual element and will be an intense cultural event. In total, six 
actors from several ethnic backgrounds, three Brazilian musicians (also 
playing Berimbau) and a master shadow puppeteer from the Philippines, will 
share the stage throughout the entire show and will interact with the 
audience – one of Dende’s hallmarks. We will also be using samba, Brazilian 
dance and Capoeira to create a theatrical language. The mix of different art 
forms from across the globe and different theatrical styles co-existing on 
the same level on stage has developed in what we call Polyphonic Theatre.

About the workshops The workshops are offered on the weeks commencing March 
21st and March 28th 2006. All the workshops will be led by two CBR checked 
professional workshop leaders from Dende Collective, specialised on the 
theme covered by the chosen workshop. We can negotiate special arrangements
