Ueinzz Theatre Company: Cosmopolitical Delay brings together a major new essay by philosopher Peter Pál Pelbart—a member of Ueinzz since its inception twenty years ago—and experiential contributions by other core members of the Brazilian theatre company. The thinkers, actors, philosophers, users of psychiatry, and therapists who make up Ueinzz adopt the theatre as a device “for changing power over life into power for life”. Self-described as a “community of those with no community, for a community to come”, Ueinzz proposes a territory of performance “for all those who feel the world around them is crumbling”. Through personal recollections, fragments of scripts, and philosophical musings, Pelbart rounds out the significance of Ueinzz’s “way of life”. Complementary contributions are by fellow Ueinzz members, including Paula Francisquetti, Leonardo Lui Cavalcanti, Amélia Monteiro de Melo, and the late Iza Cremonine.
