The contemporaneousness, breaking with traditional values and opening space for new styles and aesthetics, has enabled other (dis) paths in the artistic milieu, in which art is closer and closer to reality. In this sense, the theater also innovated, especially, about its social function; Bringing to the proscenium themes that represent the different layers of a society in constant transformation. Indeed, anchoring in the contributions of Magaldi (1998), Ryngaert (1996) and Pallottini (1989) on the notions that configure the theatrical discourse; In the studies of Enedino (2009) on the concept of marginality and in the theoretical assumptions of Lins (1990) and Ginzburg (2012) regarding the concept of violence, the objective of this work is to reflect on the constitution of the people enrolled in the play Nossa vida tido vale 11171 Chevrolet (2008), of the paranaense playwright Mario Bortolotto. In the text, questions of power and social representations are taken from the discourses of the characters, in keeping with the theoretical assumptions of Ubersfeld (2005). It should be noted that this article seeks to understand the ways of structuring Bortolotto's aesthetic project, which, influenced by cinema, music and the Beatnik culture, approaches those considered outsiders.
