Augusto is a 35-year-old Brazilian immigrant who lives in Portugal with his mother Inês and dog Clarinha. In addition to serving and enduring his mother’s scorn on a daily basis, Augusto has a job he hates. His only pleasure is in going to the theater often, where he can forget about his problems and give himself over to a strong feeling of ecstasy. With an increasingly oppressive personal life, Augusto intensifies his trips to the theater, but they don’t seem to be enough. Obsessed, he starts questioning some actors at the end of the shows, starts interrupting performances to ask for more delivery, until one day, in the middle of an argument, he ends up assaulting a director. Augusto’s bad reputation becomes nationally known and theaters start putting up signs at the box office, which forbid him to enter. No longer possible to be public, he decides to be an actor. He looks for numerous companies and artists, but they refuse for various reasons, even because of what they consider to be another language, “Brazilian”. Desperate, Augusto executes a coup: taking a spectacle by force. He kidnaps the actors of a company on the day of a premiere and takes […]

Cepa Torta Company Change. This word that always seems to mean the destruction of something for the construction of something else that favors us, homo sapiens. How to believe in the end of the world and be happy? How to escape the lack of hope? Like someone who frees himself from a silent cry, forged by the anxiety of someone who is faced with a cosmic cataclysm, Filipe Abreu continues in search of revolution, of hope for a better future and, failing that, seeks the best way to live in peace with the your consciousness during the greatest weather disaster in known history. In theater/conference format, it presents a raw portrait of human impacts on the planet throughout history and today, from the first mass extinctions with the arrival of humans in Australia, in 45,000 BC, to the plastic islands that colonized large Pacific areas. It addresses (and criticizes) current attempts to change the world for the better, and future prospects for our species and its surroundings. Will technology be able to sustain the health of planet Earth? Will the human species be able to radically change its way of living and facing the world? Creation, Interpretation and Light FILIPE […]

Iron Theater Things, objects have a very special way of communicating – with us and with each other – gwarggaflrlghf! The apparatus of a conference is the starting point for this new incursion into the world of things. This device is, like all others, a way of organizing objects (a table, chairs, microphones, etc.), bodies, discourses and some rules – some written and others implicit. This is not, however, just any conference: the lecturer is an actor and his communication is a performance in which the objects insist on having yet another word to add. Our guest will try to present some ideas on the matter. Will he be able to do it in the midst of a revolt of objects? Don’t miss this conference, it will be lively! This is the second moment of a cycle dedicated to objects that Teatro de Ferro started with the Popular Itinerant Object Library. “Our Object Revolt wants to tell us about all this and also about the fear that a certain piece of furniture inspired in us in childhood, especially when it cracked in the middle of the night – this is for us the beginning of the revolt…” – Igor Gandra […]

Children from 6 to 11 years old (accompanied by an adult) What happens in a Question Workshop? “Here we learn what things are, what words are. we walk to see what exists, what is real, we explain the words and the questions!” – Marco said, when evaluating one of the philosophy workshops. These are intended to be a space and a time to stop to think, “train” the critical eye, explore possibilities and investigate – together. How does a Question Workshop take place? In the workshops, we try to identify problems, in the form of questions, to investigate together. We can do this by reading a text or a newspaper article, a situation experienced by children or even images, videos. The resources can be diverse and must be adapted to the ages of the children with whom we are going to work. From there, conditions for dialogue are built, establishing some rules, such as, for example, to speak, we ask for the floor (we put our arm in the air). THEMES May 28: THE INVISIBLE RING June 18: ON PLANET EARTH, IS 2+2 ALWAYS EQUAL TO 4? Joana Rita Sousa is a philosopher. She has been running philosophy workshops for […]

Susana Domingos Gaspar “As Amigas da Gaspar” takes place in an area of ​​freedom progression. A country within a country, where we stop to think about friendship and where it can still take us. From the territory of dance and the fascination for puppet theater, two dancers and a singer who are not very fixed or very moving, review the possibilities of support and animation of their bodies, sweep the empty space with their voices and speak in the most touching ways. that they can imagine. Once in a lifetime choreography for my daughter and her friends.

blue purposeful A show created with the community, about citizenship, about belonging to places, about political consciousness and about the endemic conflict between individual and collective interests. The apparent functional austerity, puffy and monotonous, of a condominium meeting obscures a variety of events and revelations of an intrinsically theatrical nature that this project proposes to dismantle and expose. The consequences can be serious and provoke laughter or tears, or upset more or less deeply rooted religious and political convictions. Theatrical fun arises from a bitter taste in the mouth and is reflected in black comedy, psychological thrillers, knife-and-pot or “telenovela” novels, and tragedy. In this Agora, with walls and ceiling, what is authentic and self-represented in individuals is revealed, contradictions, idealizations, kindness and rudeness, cynicism, desire, loneliness, selfishness, the emptiness of soul, dogmas and prejudices. It is a space for debate and mutual help, for open conflict and for solving banal tasks, but also for epic “big statements”. “Condominium” is the microscale of political action and republican praxis. It is the place of confluence of action of a public nature and what is of the private order, the place of social organization in which the relations between will and duty […]

Margem is inspired by the 1937 novel by Jorge Amado, “Capitães de Areia”, which portrays a group of abandoned children and adolescents who live on the streets of São Salvador da Bahia, stealing to eat, and sleeping in a warehouse – a warehouse where, like a kind of family, they protect each other and survive one day at a time. 80 years after the book was published, we wanted to question who the new sand captains are, inspired by the social reality of these children, and aware that there are not always happy endings. Who are these people who are put on the sidelines, and when does this marginalization begin? In the starting house of life, do we all have the same chances or do some start to fight already in deficit? Are there ways to break this? Which are? Seriously? Sure? Is the new world that we have managed to build with all our ideals of equality for all really admirable? In an idea of ​​documentary theater, and in collaboration with Joana Craveiro, this project is based on work with young people who were deprived of education, food, affection, a father, a mother, young people who committed crimes, young […]
