THE THEATRE OF A READ MAN is a project that meets with the work of E. de Melo e Castro, built with poetic coordinates – between Lisbon and São Paulo, between theatre, performance and poetry. Three Portuguese actors and three Brazilian actors create a pendulum where words gain uncertain concepts, oscillating between various temporalities and spatialities.
E. M. de Melo e Castro is a poet, essayist and engineer, born in Covilhã (Portugal), pioneer of experimental poetry, interventions and performances that marked the 60s/70s, in the period of the Portuguese Fascist Dictatorship, and who lives in São Paulo for about 20 years.
Melo and Castro’s poetic work, biography, and testimonies touch, encourage, and motivate a resistance intervention. Resistance to intolerance, resistance to technological delirium, resistance to pollution and the destruction of ecosystems, resistance to ourselves and our weaknesses.
