Regina Cas? was born on a Carnaval day, in Botafogo, the heart of Rio de Janeiro. She studied media, philosophy and history -- but never graduated. Instead, she pursued a career as an actress and founded the Asdr?bal Trouxe o Trombone troupe in the 1970s. At age 23 she won the Moliere Award with her play Trate-me Le?o. Her many successful projects as an actress include comedy show TV Pirata, in 1988, a landmark in Brazilian comedy starring Cas? and other household names such as Guel Arraes, Luis Fernando Verissimo and members of Casseta e Planeta. In 1989, she met researcher Hermano Vianna and this led to a turning point in her career. Together, they created a group of studies and professional partnerships that caused her to shift the focus of her work from art to anthropology. This partnership gave way to Brazil Legal, Muvuca, and Central da Periferia, among others. =============================================== About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience.
