[Introduction] Notívagos Burlescos DAO



Hello guys!
How are you?

I’m here to introduce you to Notívagos Burlescos DAO, the web3 manifestation of Associação Teatral Notívagos Burlescos, a theater-oriented cultural institution based in Botucatu, São Paulo, Brazil. Below we talk a little about who we are, what we intend and how we think about acting on web3, in order to promote theater and spread the NEAR ecosystem in our region. Hope you like it!



Associação Teatral Notívagos Burlescos is a civil society organization based in the city of Botucatu, São Paulo, Brazil - in the interior of the state. Throughout its 20 years of history, the institution has maintained actions that have contributed to the formation of audiences and theater professionals such as actors, directors and playwrights. Professionals who are currently in several cities in the region, in the city of São Paulo and even abroad. The Notívagos Burlescos has always played a role as an “artistic incubator” and libertarian (in poetic terms) in the region, being historically recognized by generations of artists.

The institution began in 2002 as a theater group and, over the years, has established itself as an important cultural and artistic center in the region. Although the theatrical language is the main focus, other artistic manifestations such as literature, cinema and music were also explored. These actions were related to the creation of shows, workshops, conversation circles and integration between the arts - something very characteristic and inherent to the theatrical language.

The group has always had a strong characteristic of adapting and dialoguing with the times and the public with which it is working. In this aspect, we feel that our performance within the NEAR ecosystem was fluid and pleasant. The actions that we have been proposing have helped us to see the countless possibilities of action that a theater group can have within the web3 and, thanks to NEAR, we are being encouraged to produce more and seek more engagement, interaction and diversification in the proposals, both in person and virtual.

Until then, our proposals have been limited to taking place within the Writer’s Guild, which has welcomed us and invested in all our projects so far (we are very grateful!). However, we feel the need to create Notívagos Burlescos DAO so that we can expand our actions and, consequently, the reach of NEAR to other audiences and artists focused on the theatrical language, here in the interior of São Paulo. And that’s what we came to present to you.



The main objective of Notívagos Burlescos DAO within the NEAR ecosystem will be to promote theater on web3 and in the interior of São Paulo, more specifically in the Botucatu region. Focused on expanding theater within the NEAR ecosystem and expanding the ecosystem into the physical world, through theater.

We will support and encourage the actions of the Associação Teatral Notívagos Burlescos and of artists and theater groups, whether amateurs or professionals, from the Botucatu region. Thus, we will work with audience formation through our pedagogical initiatives, such as workshops and shows; with the professionalization of aspiring theater artists and, consequently, with the diffusion of the language in the region, through our artistic productions.

But, in addition to that, we want to expand our presence both on the traditional web and on the web3, which will also lead us to invest in technological solutions that make the theater more interesting to the virtual format.
And, as theater is naturally an integration language for other languages, we also want to maintain and propose actions together with other DAOs.



The decision to delimit our physical scope to the Botucatu region is to ensure a strategic positioning within the interior of the state of São Paulo, a region that often lacks language stimuli, but has a large number of professionals. Thus, in the course of our actions, we intend to carry out onboard professionals within NEAR and in our DAO so that we can deliberate the use of funds with other members and partners of the Association within the NEAR ecosystem itself.
We already have a development and financial sustainability plan prepared a few years ago, but it was only possible to start thanks to NEAR. But despite the support that NEAR will give us, we will seek to diversify our funding sources with regional, state and federal public notices and contracts; in addition to membership.

Now, in relation to sustainability within the web3, we will continue to maintain our initiatives of producing content with a focus on the ecosystem and the creation of products in NFT, such as: e-books, shows and dramatic readings with transmissions or virtual hosting, sale of tickets via cryptocurrency, among other alternatives that we identify.



Those who have already had the opportunity to participate in a theater group or in a theatrical production know that the creative process within this artistic language is dilated, developing in different stages until it is ripe to occupy the stages or the streets, becoming, in general, lengthy and costly processes.

In this way, we elaborate a management strategy that foresees the accomplishment of the work stages in ranges of values, where each proposal can be requested to attend a specific stage of the theatrical creation process. However, they can be requested for a certain number of consecutive times, depending on the size of the global project, which will allow the acceptance of several proposals, even if they have different durations and sizes.



Since 2008, Notívagos Burlescos are a for-profit association, that is, we are a formalized cultural institution, with an elected board and everything else. Although there are approximately 09 active members on the board, we have managed to onboard the ecosystem of 03 members so far, namely: @johnfaus, @eliaspintanel and @pvpreviatto. The same members will compose the founding board of Notívagos Burlescos DAO.

Elias Pintanel - @eliaspintanel

Elias Pintanel (1991) is an actor, director, playwright and theater teacher. He likes the written word and he likes it being used on stage, in movies, in streaming, or wherever. He studies and explores in his work the relationship between critical theater, society and life, but linked with elements of everyday life, the popular, the exchange carried out in everyday life on the streets and in personal relationships. His works present the relationship between the poetic and the grotesque, satire and scathing criticism, acid humor and subtlety. In 2022, he created texts that gained air not only on stage, but on technological platforms such as streaming, blockchain, NTFs, e-books and NEAR. He has a master’s degree in Performing Arts from UNICAMP (2017), but he learns much more in practice and in the relationship with spectators, whether in person or virtual.

We entered the NEAR ecosystem in the first half of this year through Writer’s Guild, where we have since carried out actions that were in person at the “GARAGE - Espaço de Cultural” in Botucatu/SP, Brazil; and which at the same time were all streamed online through our channels and the Writer’s Guild channels.
The actions ranged from the creation of dramatic texts with subsequent reading of them, such as the creation of a podcast with writers for theater in the country, a poetry contest, and the creation of e-books (which are on Mintbase).
