In Three Eccentric Texts each of the works suggests a textual and scenic universe with its own characteristics that arises from an artistic research process developed between author and actors, postulating a set of formal and semiotic possibilities that deviate from the dramatic text structure, searching for new centres, original, but at the same time closely related to the mechanics of the scene and the movements of transformation we observe in the World: communication, means of communication and exposition , borders, family, memory and time.
Therefore, the three texts we have chosen, Display, She Says and Raide, shape in their structure and themes the concepts of: exposition (of facts related to the theatrical doing in alternative devices allowing new points of view); subject, discourse and repetition, (in affiliation relations); narrative and course (in a recent Portugal); respectively. In this sense, the volume is also a discourse/manifesto, as a mechanism of a locomotive that guarantees the possibility of a regular displacement, in a given sense [besides, eccentric is in Portuguese (excêntrico) the organ mounted on the shaft, which in a machine, turns rotation movement in reciprocating motion].
