“Karnak and Fractions, a parasympathetic equation of astronomical proportions”, went the text narrated by Abujamra, referring to the Naval Universe show that ran from August 17 to October 12 at Teatro Santa Cruz. Written and directed by Marcelo Castro and André Abujamra, the show presented a fusion of artistic languages and circus numbers, set to a soundtrack by the band Karnak.

For the costumes, Jum Nakao tapped the irreverence and unpredictability of the Karnaks by creating futuristic hats out of kitchen utensils.
