MISE EN ABYME is the new theatre performance by Cão Solteiro & Vasco Araújo, where I give my voice to the director of a film that is never going to be made.
You can see it from March 1st to the 3rd @ São Luiz Teatro Municipal
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.
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.
This weekend I’ll be part of the program “Estar em Casa” at S. Luiz theatre in Lisbon.
A program curated by journalist Anabela Mota Ribeiro and artist André e. Teodósio, around the idea of “Home”, transforming the whole theatre into their home.
This week we finish our Morceau de Bravoure, the show I’m directing with Cão Solteiro for the National Ballet Company, CNB.
Until November 22 at Teatro Camões in Lisbon.
The show ANTOLÓGICA by Cão Solteiro & Vasco Araújo will be presented at Centro Cultural Vila Flor in Guimarães on the 5th of December.
This is one pic from the performance where you can see the video I did, looking down at the actors…
In February I presented the show DAY FOR NIGHT, with theatre company Cão Solteiro, where we turned the stage of Culturgest into a film set. In this performance the audience could see the shooting of the film: FIM DA FITA/ THE END OF THE REEL.
Now you can see the film. November 28th, 23h30 at Cinema Ideal in Lisbon, integrated in Festival Temps d’Images.
