andy / edie

New York, 1965.The pop artist ANDY WARHOL meets EDIE SEDGWICK, a girl of only 22 years old, beautiful, rich, friend of celebrities and possessing something that he defined as "Electric Glamor". At the same time Edie maintained a troubled relationship with the young musician BOB DYLAN, who made no attempt to hide his contempt for Andy and his displeasure at the friendship between the young model and the master of POP ART. This was the context for one of the craziest and cruelest seasons in the history of Contemporary culture. In 2006, Cia. Espaço em BRANCO was awarded with the Occupancy Notice for the Teatro de Arena in Porto Alegre, granted by the State Department of Culture in order to make the assembly of unpublished shows feasible.
