Theatre

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
september 7 – 10 at Culturgest

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.

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.
