STILL ON THE ROAD
10 MAR 2019
CINEMA RIVOLI, TYRE, LEBANON
International Women Monodrama Festival of Lebanon
PROMOTED BY TIRO ASSOCIATION FOR ARTS 

 

 

Still On the Road is a new approach on the text by Carlos J. Pessoa, On the Road or The Hour of the Rainbow, eleven years after its first production. In a version thought out considering the invitation to participate in the International Women Monodrama Festival of Lebanon, in Lebanon, Still On the Road takes us back to the story of Maria’s journey, the story of a woman who, in her route between Cape St. Vincent and Pulo do Lobo, creates from still memories the absence that fills her life and that springs from the landscapes. Still On the Road stands as a tribute to her Mother, to whom the director, Ana Palma, dedicates this show.

RADIODRAMA
IN EVERYBODY’S LIPS CYCLE
A TEATRO DA GARAGEM INITIATIVE
PARTNERSHIP WITH RTP – RÁDIO E TELEVISÃO DE PORTUGAL
IN RECORDINGS | FEB 2019 | RDP STUDIOS

 

 

The Portuguese language is one of the engines of our public service contract. We create an open doors Theatre, with what comes, with what is manifested. Teatro da Garagem partakes in a theatrical event that involves more and more people who are all different from each other; the spirit of time, encourages us to search in those commitments for a renewed theatrical practice. Considering that Cesário said the verses: “taking to the railroad those who leave happy…Madrid, Paris, Berlin, St. Petersburg, the World”, then maybe it would be appropriate to think that the direction of the journey has reversed; that in the global World we find the singular place of an unexpected network.

Carlos J. Pessoa

On Everybody’s Lips is a programme cycle of touring by Teatro da Garagem, which focuses on the word to promote not only writing for contemporary theatre, but also the specific culture of each country. It is precisely the particularity, of travelling without leaving the same place or even making a pole out of theatre, to where different accounts and descriptions of the world converge, that characterizes one of the circulation projects, of the word and the texts, that constitute the thematic programme cycle On Everybody’s Lips: Radiodram.

Radiodram is a project of peculiar circulation, that promotes and advertises contemporary dramaturgy in Portuguese, written directly in the language of Camões or translated from other languages, from the same place – a studio of radio broadcasting. The project results in a radio show that will be broadcasted in the various channels of RDP and other associated radio stations, in Portugal and the Portuguese-speaking countries, through RDP África.

What’s love got to do with it?

 

I stretch my foot and the heel touches the smooth warm flesh of a cheek; I turn left, with my back to the lamplight, and I’m met by a calm soft breath; I gesture casually in the dark and my hand, involuntary clasp of fingers, wrist, throbbing blood, falls over a warm naked breast or a baby’s little head, with a tuft of black fuzz on the top of a bald spot, the throbbing fontanelle; we breathe in each other’s mouths, we trade arms and legs, sweat puffs, with each other, for each other, so fit together, so wrapped up and tangled in the same heat as if our veins and arteries pumped the same blood in a circle, as if they throbbed regularly silently  one single vivifying sap.

WHAT’S LOVE GOT TO DO WITH IT? PERFORMANCE, AFFECTIVITY, INTIMACY

The boundaries between the public and the private sphere are gradually fading away. This sometimes implies a reduction in the active participation of citizens, who are transformed into mere spectators of other lives and intimacies amplified through the media. In turn, the media are creating new spaces for personal and collective expression by making these porous relations between the public and the intimate more visible, with a facility that was previously unimaginable.
Intimacy has become the center of public performances, with all its accompanying contradictions and paradoxes. This conference explores the ways in which contemporary performance both questions and reformulates our experiences and definitions of intimacy. How do artistic practices question the boundaries between the familiar and the unfamiliar, the individual and the collective? In what way do the media, the social networks and leading a life that is geared towards a global world affect our understanding of the spaces of intimacy? What are the new places of our affections and emotions?
For two days, artists and researchers will investigate the relationship between performance, intimacy and affection from an aesthetic as well as political and sociological point of view.
At the end of each session, a conversation with Catherine Wood (Monday) and Rabbya Naseer (Tuesday), curators and thinkers of contemporary art, is presented as they continue to deepen the topics covered throughout the day.

THE COURAGE OF BEING FRAGILE

The courage of being fragile, of having weaknesses and yet, of still lying down facing the light. The courage of relating and sharing with each other, at any cost. The courage of exposing ourselves and the exposure of that same courage. The courage of crying, but above all, the courage of crying in public and reveal every tear. So that the world could see them, so that you could see them as well. In fact, they are all for you. Take them with you and drench yourself in them. Here is where I leave them, along with all these words I’ve written you. I do not remember whether it was hard for me to tell you or for you to listen at the time, so I wrote them so that you could read them one day. Take them now and leave me. Leave me here with my heart which will be worn inside out today. Until I can digest you, my stomach will too be worn inside out. You have taken away my will to eat and replaced it with my will to write, soon my will to love you shall return as well.

Where you cannot love do not delay is the absence of the interpreter’s body turned into the words of the poet. In the follow-up of the work based on the creation of performative objects developed from non-dramatic texts, this time Daniel Gorjão | Teatro do Vão, explores letters written by Frida Kahlo throughout her life. Having staged in the last project a classic text of world dramaturgy, he now returns to an intimate subject, working this way from an aesthetic imaginary recognized by all and creating a dramaturgy-choreography for an actor who will expose himself in the intimacy and the visible multiplication of Frida’s many ideas. It is from the imaginary of a timeless figure that these letters are written, on the premise of a body that survives its physical condition and perpetuates itself beyond geography and time.

Contraband, written and directed by Carlos J. Pessoa, is a theatre production that departs from the gathering of testimonies and stories related to the contraband activity in the 60s and 70s of the last century, in the border areas of Trás-os-Montes, in the north of Portugal.
Contraband is a backlit, nocturnal show of one who walks cautiously, foot-to-foot, attentive, in a state of permanent vigil, trying to recreate the states of mind and the living conditions of this heroic people who have dedicated themselves to smuggling in order to provide a better life for their children. A show that portrays the difficulties, the misery, but also the greatness, boldness and courage of the people of the frontier. A people decidedly free and able to trace, in the running of this imaginary line that is the border, its own destiny.

con·tra·band
[1] s. m. clandestine introduction of products diverted to the rights; products that form the contraband; suspicious and poor people; prohibited trade. (From it. . contrabbando, «id.»).
[2] s.m. group of individuals of opinion contrary to that of another group. (Decontra+bando).
“contrabando”, in Dictionary of the Portuguese Language [6th Edition], Porto Editora

 

The theatre production Contraband is part of the programme O Teatro e as Serras, within the framework of the Portugal Participatory Budget 2017, promoted by the Government of Portugal, through the North Region Delegation of Culture. O Teatro e as Serras aims at contributing to the development of a set of hubs of theatre activity, organized according to the mountainous landscape of Trás-os-Montes, as an inclusive geographic element. In this context, Teatro Municipal de Bragança, responsible for implementing the programme in the mountainous areas of Montesinho and Coroa, has invited Teatro da Garagem to develop a research and artistic project in the Municipalities of Bragança, Vinhais and Montalegre.

Teatro da Garagem and Teatro Municipal de Bragança which this year celebrate their 30 and 15 years of activity, respectively, have been developing a continuous work of partnership, having the cultural and human landscape of Trás-os-Montes as background. If, on the one hand, a territory corresponds to a physical determination of a delimited geographical area, on the other hand, that determination is also defined by the relationships established between different individuals or groups, in a dynamic, affective and cultural perspective. Teatro da Garagem will be elaborating on this living heritage to create this artistic project on the topic of contraband at the border. Through revisiting the topic of contraband, the Company aims at giving visibility to this practice, not in a museological sense, but rather in an attempt of bringing to life a cultural legacy, transmitted from generation to generation, which embodies, in a poetic and artistic construction, the history of a place. A physical and affective place, relating to both individual and collective memory.

[Vernissage 13 dezembro, 6:00 pm]

 

Standing on the periphery of a shared environment – Débora Bastos, Filipa Anica and Joana Hintze – decided to get together to think. “Magazine” is about the Pop and exaggerated side of what has no soul, about the melancholy of vulgar and bloodless death. Like the confessions sold in the Chin13ese shop. To tell the truth about the violence of the static, about the invisible stab of what does not move. The yellow alarm of the letters in an ad, directing the lights to the pain, so well disguised in the plastic of a mannequin that smiles to the exact measure to show compassion for who exists. To be cool in a strange place.

Despite the hardships it has been facing lately, Clube Recreativo do Bairro Janeiro (CRBJ) remains one of the movements that dynamizes the sports practice the most in Amadora. Handball, Kickboxing, Karate, Zumba and Yoga are only a few of the many activities the Club offers to its members and the general population. In the year of their 50th anniversary, CRBJ is not just another Club, it is an institution worthy of the official distinction of Public Utility. More than a status this is the confirmation of the history of the lives at the service of the community, in an act of sharing that can be described as cohesive, resilient and completely voluntary.
