CUMA is a Brazilian expression that derives from the question "Come again?” A short interruption that leaves space for the unexpected to arise. CUMA is the invitation to look closer at what we don’t yet understand.
CUMA consists of percussionist and drummer Bruna Cabral, saxophonist Jakob Jentgens and physical theatre maker Elina Brams Ritzau. In 2020, they were a part of the creation of the performative band project The Peculiars which premiered at the Physical Fetz festival. In winter 2021, they developed the full-length physical theatre concert Vacation from Love which was awarded the Folkwang Prize 2021 for performing arts.
