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.
