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.
Now working to sound of construction work, rehearsing the upcoming show COULD BE WORSE: THE MUSICAL by Cão Solteiro & André Godinho. It premieres in November.
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…
