Uma tarde no mundo / Performance

João Sousa Cardoso


Sequências Narrativas Completas

© Maria Begasse

Sequências Narrativas Completas is a show designed by artist João Sousa Cardoso based on the work of the same title by writer and painter Álvaro Lapa, in a construction between theater and conference - different with every new presentation. At the intersection between the performing arts and the labour of thought made visible, this show crosses the dramatization of the text and inner monologue with the diaristic account and the essay on the intimate, domestic and public life in Portugal in the wake of revolution and democracy.
