MEMORIAL FOR PEDRO AND INÊS DE PORTUGAL
ACTA – The Algarve Theater Company
The tragedy of D. Pedro I and D. Inês de Castro is among the themes
most addressed by arts and literature from around the world. Undoubtedly, the theme occupies a place of great relief and extraordinary curiosity, not only historical but also mythical, philosophical, artistic …
ACTA addresses this theme again from a triple perspective of novelty: first, the narrative does not follow the historical chronology of events – our story begins now Pedro and Inês are in the tombs; second, the story will be told only using images and music – therefore, without using the spoken word; third, to direct this show we invited one of the most prominent European directors, specialist in this kind of theatrical performance, the Polish Leszek Mandzik.
