“Trip to Pancaya” offers us a trip. A trip to that fantastic and utopian island where the human being was happy and lived in harmony, where the food and the roof were shared and the greatest treasure was laughter. And that is how it is, at a time like this that we have been experiencing lately, when trips, celebrations and shared meals seem like memories from another world. 17th century characters, whose problems we will recognize as ours, in a proposal that goes far beyond theatrical reconstruction. On this trip we are accompanied by Quiñones de Benavente, Agustín de Rojas, Juan del Encina, Quevedo, Calderón de la Barca, Cervantes and other anonymous authors from the 17th century. On the stage we find, Commedia dell’Arte, farce, comedy, music, instruments, masks and period equipment.
DATE AND TIME CHANGE – Seventeen years in the life of a group is, according to statistics, a long age, since, with the exception of some musical projects, the vast majority are not even half. In these years, Al Mouraria has gone through several moments: good and gratifying emotions on the ‘road’, renovations, exits of elements giving space for others to enter – but the most important thing was to keep the hard core, the ‘backbone’ of the group. This new work (the seventh of the group), which aimed to mark his return to the stage after some internal reformulations, ended up being conditioned by the pandemic Covid 19, which caused its completion to be delayed some months. ‘Com Vida’, the chosen title, ends up turning into a pun, since, by passing on the message that the band is alive, it also suggests the invitation made to about two dozen artists to participate in the disc recording both in the Algarve as in Lisbon, places where this new album was built that will debut on the Cineteatro stage.
Synopsis: Born in Rimini (Italy), on January 20, 1920, Federico Fellini is considered one of the most influential directors in the history of cinema. For almost four decades, he created his own style that left its mark on world cinematography with films as emblematic as “La Dolce Vita”, “8½” or “Amarcord”. In a mixture of fiction and documentary, the octogenarian Ettore Scola – with the help of his daughters, Paola and Sílvia, who support him in the argument – analyzes the filmmaker’s career, revisiting films and places, and recreating key moments in his life . Ettore Scola met Fellini in 1947 and was one of his closest friends until his death in 1993. Projected at the 2013 Venice Film Festival, “Que Estranho Chamar-se Federico” – a title that cites a poem by García Lorca – is a tribute film to the great Italian master, in the year of the 20th anniversary of his death.
