Grandpa Gerson was only living his best life. On that day, he woke up early to prepare a special meal for his beloved granddaughter arriving from the big town to visit the family. However, this encounter brings a generational & ideological clash, changing Gerson’s life forever.

Between love, hate, guilt & pleasure, the yellow traffic light of their beloved city is taken down. Who is the culprit? How far can you love those who vote against you? How many secrets a family has to hide to keep together?

This thought-provoking, dark-comedy was written by the Brazilian performer Isabella Sperotto, inspired by the story of her family and the rise of the far-right in Brazil.

Navigating through radio novels, character-comedy, music and physical theatre, this is a witty storytelling, in which the performer gives life & voice to a whole family on stage.

Press & Reviews

LIFE AND VOICE 


Performer Isabella Sperotto expanded more energy into her one-woman show The Yellow Traffic Light then I've mustered the entire week (...). Switching personas in such a fire quick fashion is surreal, differentiated by mannerisms and aided by props (...). The props also allow a layer of physical comedy which, when combined with the jokes, make for an absurdly funny piece. (Noises OFF - April 2022, issue 4, by Nathan Hardie)


The Yellow Traffic Light performed exquisitely by Isabella Sperotto was a fantastical, hilarious solo piece lending from various different styles yet creating something inherently their own. Catharina's Conte direction is remarkably precise yet playful. A touch of genius. (Nathan Dunn - contributor of Noises Off Newspaper)
