It starts like this ⬆️ and it ends like this ⬇️ COULD BE WORSE: THE MUSICAL is a theatre show that I co-created with the theatre company Cão Solteiro. It’s a musical sang by non-professional singers with original music by PZ and Vaiapraia. It will sound good enough, I promise. Could it be better? Yes, definitely, but it surely could be worse. We’ll premiere November 7th in Porto’s Nacional Theatre São João.
COULD BE WORSE: THE MUSICAL by Cão Solteiro & André Godinho will have it’s world premiere in Porto, Teatro Nacional São João, on November 7th. With original music by PZ and Vaiapraia. More info here.
Theatre company Estrutura will be 10 years old and they’re throwing a PARTY!
My gift for them, is an alternative ending for the show we did in 2017, THE END, a new ending that says: this is not the end. Because our love is neverending.
PARTY will be at Teatro do Campo Alegre, September 29th and 30th. More info here.

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.
