Inspired by the book of contemporary poems "Estas São as Letras", ("These are the letters") by Mario Castrim, this ballet depicts the alphabet using the image and sound of each letter. As in the book, the individual and collective imagination of the young audience is challenged and the invitation to participate from where they are seating or on stage is inevitable.
