Broadcaster said it reduced ballet body to follow Covid-19 ‘security protocols’
One of the registered trademarks of “domingão Faustão”Is the ballet body that is in the background doing choreography and laughing at videotapes. The problem is that after the presenter Fausto Silva announced that he will retire and will only stay ahead of Globo’s Sunday attraction until the end of 2021, several dancers have been fired. Globo confirmed the information to Young pan and, in a note, justified that the layoffs are related to the pandemic of Covid-19: “In recent months, ‘Domingão do Faustão’ has adopted new security protocols, aligned with current challenges. One of the changes was the reduction of the ballet body on the stage. This new format will be permanently adopted in 2021 in the program, which now has 20 dancers ”. The presenter’s departure after 32 years of broadcasting took many people by surprise and, behind the scenes, it is already being studied who will take his place on Sunday afternoons in Globe. One of the most highly rated names is Luciano Huck, but that will depend on the possible candidacy of the presenter for the Presidency of the Republic. Another name that came to be quoted is that of Marcos Mion, who was fired from Record, even though he was successful in eating “A Fazenda 12”.
