Higher! is a show that intends to sensitize children (and others) to the importance of democracy. On stage, important messages for our days, which are directly related to our lives. And so the questions are answered: Can music change the world? Does the world change music? What does music say about people’s projects?
Created by Afonso Cabral, Francisca Cortesão, Inês Sousa, Sérgio Nascimento, with comments by Isabel Minhós Martins and illustrations by Bernardo P Carvalho and Planeta Tangerina, Mais Alto! celebrates the power of music in expressing ideas or feelings. Its lineup includes several historical and striking themes by artists such as José Mário Branco, Caetano Veloso, Xutos e Pontapés, B Fachada and many others. The creation of this show resulted from an invitation from Teatro LU.CA, in Lisbon.
In 2022, the Highest! was part of the celebrations of the 50th anniversary of the 25th of April, touring from north to south of the country, passing through 30 different locations, in a total of 48 sessions, one for each of the 48 years of the 25th of April. In 2023, the show will continue to tour the country. The 25th of April celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2024. We must continue to sing it louder!
