Hundreds of artists put on a bright show outside the Municipal Theater in Sao Paulo on World's Theater Day, Monday, to protest against the freezing of cultural budget.

The protesters were dancing, singing and playing drums while holding banners reading “Unfreeze the culture”. Earlier this year, Sao Paulo Mayor Joao Doria announced a cut of the budget allocated for culture.
