Proud to be in the Closet/Armário

I’m now part of the TV documentary series ARMÁRIO, directing episodes 4 to 13. ARMÁRIO is a show about fashion that is not closed in a closet, it’s broad, funny and political, it entertains and makes you think (hopefully 😬). With the great Joana Barrios.Screen Shot 2018-10-29 at 12.27.28
The first episode (directed by me) is about the history of Fashion Weeks, where did they come from, what are they for, and who are they for? It screens November 17 on RTP2 IMG_0036

Real fake

I was in Porto, for a 2 day seminar on the theatre course RECURSO, talking about my work in video for theatre, but specially about the limits of fiction and the effect of reality in theatre performances. Everything is fake, but there are things that are really fake. RECURSO was created by Estrutura, more info here.

I’m OK…

This is why I don’t usually shave… but it’s alright, we’re gonna be alright.
WE’RE GONNA BE ALRIGHT is a theatre performance by Cão Solteiro & André Godinho

Working on the different features that audiences look for in blockbusters, Cão Solteiro & André Godinho continue their research into the relationship between theatre and cinema, making a show about the most spectacular component of films: the special effects. Here the effects are not placed at the service of narrative, they replace it, indefinitely postponing it and ceasing to be special. Just as in early cinema, which was a fairground attraction, what we see here is the spectacle for its own sake, the effect without a cause, a montage of attractions. We’re Gonna Be Alright is a blockbusted with sex, blood and violence.
