Photographer's Note

Pedro Calmon Theater is part of a gigantic military complex of headquarters, it was inaugurated in 1968 and it is a project of Niemeyer, a communist who created this building that were inaugurated during the worst period of military dictatorship, that was ever hunting communists in the 1960's, maybe the project was made before and concluded in those days, named "Years of Lead".
This theater has 1200 seats and it located at side of Duque de Caxias avenue and even at side of a giant complex of barracks, something I will show you tomorrow, it is one of the most impressive structures in the town. The lateral side of the building remember me the shapes of the ramps of an hydroelectric dam, where the waters not used are poured.

O Teatro Pedro Calmon parte do imenso complexo do Quartel General do Exrcito, foi inaugurado em 1968 e um projeto de Niemeyer.
O teatro conta com 1200 lugares e fica ao lado da Avenida Duque de Caxias e do imenso complexo de quarteis, uma das estruturas mais interessantes de Braslia e que vou mostrar amanh.
A lateral do teatro me lembra o aspecto das rampas por onde as usinas hidroeltricas despejam as guas que no usam.
