A, Brazil flag emoji, 47 (ABfe47) is an experimental play following Brazilian-Canadian CAUÃ as he remembers his past relationship with much older, also Brazilian ANDERSON, the namesake of CAUÃ’s absent father.

Taking the form of a performance installation, ABfe47 invites audiences to experience the intimacy and poetry of this developing script in an engaging way.

ABfe47 is a search for familiarity amidst the unknown, taking the lasting power and fragmented nature of memory to explore fatherlessness in marginalized communities, grief, identity, love—or rather the idea of it, trauma, and the sometimes- (often-) muddied lines of queer hookup culture.
