To what extent can objects from our everyday lives be responsible for major natural disasters? What is the impact of our actions on the other side of the planet? O Estado do Mundo (Quando Acordas) puts into play cause-effect relationships between small gestures and big consequences.

Edi is an 8-year-old boy with a very full life. Every day he consumes and discards many things until he receives an unexpected invitation. At that moment, he begins a journey through a world invisible to his eyes, marked by the climate crisis. In a world out of order, it is necessary to look to the past and make everything right in the future. Time is always ticking.
O Estado do Mundo (Quando Acordas) is the first show of a diptych that is intended to think about the state of the world - natural, political, geographical, social, historical, economic, and human.
