      The theatrical play, “Separações” (Breaking Up) has excellent dramatic appeal. Combined with the author’s unique style and rare quality of his dialogues, his script is intelligent, moving, fast and fun, and makes you think about the conflicts that come hand in hand with breaking up.

      Domingos writes a funny, intense and emotional script about breaking up, based upon the stages a person goes through when faced with the fact they are going to die – denial, negotiation, anger and acceptance.

Growing inside them is the desire for freedom mixed with the fear of facing the world alone. Gravitating towards this world of mixed feelings are friends, ex-lovers and hidden passions that get entwined in an intelligent, humorous and human plot. The spectator will definitely identify with at least one of the characters in this movie that describes in a moving and hilarious way the complications that arise when we mix love, desire, friendship, anger and fantasies. during his life, redefined not just himself but also the Brazilian culture.
