January 21 @ 21:00 - January 23 @ 22:20€10
Here’s the organizers’ synopsis País das canções de embalar (aka ‘Lullaby Country’):
“A flight attendant guides us on a journey and asks us to forget. A crossing in a sailing boat. A story narrated by two women. A musician. A conflict arises between the author in the text and the author of the text, and the one who narrates loses control of the language as the text proliferates. The story she wanted to tell was the story of a Portuguese water dog that, for reasons she doesn’t know, was impossible for her to tell. The scenic device plays with the questions that open up in the search for an identity, be it the identity of Vitor, of a country, of a city, or of a dog: what if the differentiation between you and me were impossible? What if the certainty and authenticity of an “I” no longer constituted a problem? Close your eyes and see. A dream: a lulling net is woven where words rest. Places of imagination where songs that evoke interrogations echo.
‘My autobiography is always someone else’s life story.’
David Antunes, We, The Animals, 2013.”
