SYNOPSIS

ACCELERATION is the show that celebrates the 30th anniversary of Teatro da Garagem. ACCELERATION is an anthropophysical conjecture, which explores the scenic possibility of intersecting the Christian Faith, because, uncontrolled, it runs through our veins, with Quantum Mechanics. We speak of Faith in people, as particles, which can be so many, that are all, past, present and future, and so different from each other. In this show, we bring together all these people, adults, actors, teens, children, mass of particles in acceleration. Will Faith and Quantum Mechanics be derivations of the same miracle of Reconciliation; of the fraternal bridge, of solitary solidarity? Is there a Memory that expands and contracts, beyond us, a legacy that becomes effective, in Acceleration’s power, frenzy and slowness? From Acceleration to Reconciliation, we continue to experience this anthropophysical conjecture, in which Theatrical Mechanics and Quantum Mechanics meet. Will this effort, this delusion, this tacit agreement, this crucifixion, this 30 year celebration of Teatro da Garagem be worth it? Years we live by, that are ours and do not belong to us? Years that have been, and are, giving, fading and commotion? We do not know nothing, nor do we have the right to demand anything. That is accurate, that’s enough for us.

Thank you.

Carlos J. Pessoa

Provisional EXHIBITION

[Performance | Exhibition]

“How many variation may a pose have?”, we read about Poses and Variations (Calouste Gulbenkian Museum, 2018 – 2019). We think these may be words to start asking questions aboutwhat we are going to do.
How many ideas and ideals do we take from others? How many behaviours do we mimic?
In what way are our gestures constructed and composed?  Which are ours exclusively?
How many poses are still invented? Any?
I perform for so many people, so do they perform for me?
I’m the one in the picture above but the expression is not mine.
It’s his, it’s hers, it’s hers…

They say classical music is a very serious thing, very learned! But we like to play around with everything. If we met Il Maestro Vivaldi or Herr Mozart, most probably we would pull one’s beard and ruffle the other’s hair. As it seems it is impossible for them to come down to earth, the only thing we can do is play with the music from them both: sing over it, dance to it like one dances to a good rock song, clap in violins, play the triangle in the stops and add maracas and xylophones to the stern string quartet.

It’s going to be a very animated “disconcert” but made in all seriousness!

About ALBERTO VELHO NOGUEIRA:

Conseiller Musical à la “Médiathèque de la communauté française de Belgique”(aujourd’hui – today “Point Culture”) de 1971 à 2006. Ecrivain/Writer. Éditeur/Editor. Alberto Velho Nogueira’s books are very rarely available in bookstores. “Homem à Janela” publishes Alberto Velho Nogueira’s works, without going through the usual selection that publishers make, which follow guidelines, economic or not, that are only justified by the fact that publishers increasingly depend and belong to markets based on the commercial exploitation of fiction. Alberto Velho Nogueira’s works do not belong to the typical literature categories, nor to the appreciation systems that markets of economic-commercial and the general and institutional critiques seek.  The critique is usually done through a demonstration of itself and its own limits. The markets that work for success are founders of mental constraints. The institutional markets work in a closed circle and for the defence of conventional values. The writings that represent an autonomous tendency for fictional literature are rare nowadays.
