And now the end is near 🎶

Me, Cátia and Zé, we’re gonna end everything in Coimbra, and our victims as usual will be Ana Tang and Tiago Jácome. THE END is a theatre performance I created with ESTRUTURA that will be shown at TAGV on February 8th, more info HERE.

Deluxed

Cão Solteiro & André Godinho were invited by 23 Milhas to revamp they’re show from 2011: PLAY, THE FILM, in a deluxe version featuring music performed live by Filarmónica Gafanhense and a number danced by Bailarinas da Casa do Povo da Gafanha da Nazaré.
We went from 6 actors to 66 performers!
PLAY, THE FILM DELUXE was presented December 15th at Casa da Cultura de Ílhavo.

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.

This weekend I’ll be home.

To Be or Not To Be’yoncé

gaivotas beyonce alipio padilhaTwo weeks ago at the opening of Teatro Praga‘s new home, Rua das Gaivotas,6, I did a 5 minute workshop on “How to make your selfie look like a Beyoncé video”. Before and after there were other 5 minute workshops about things as different as folding t-shirts, learning the art of flattering, learning how to disappear or how to make a painting without getting your self dirty. This is the place where everything can happen.
