“Fernando and the Stars” tells the story of a boy who spoke to the stars and believes that Portugal’s destiny can and should be different. Thus, we enter the world of imagination and the mind of Fernando Pessoa during the process of creating his great work “Mensagem”, focusing on the exploration of the first part, entitled “Coat of Arms”.
In studying the work, in addition to the poetic and historical perspective, choreographer Filipa Rodrigues also explores the astrological side, as Fernando Pessoa was also an astrologer. By knowing this side, we will better understand the author’s mind and, consequently, we will understand the work itself.
