“This is my love story” is a documentary theater show in which real people tell their life stories of fighting against fascism and Portuguese colonialism. We look at this recent past of resistance, but focusing attention on love and the loving relationships that were born within these struggles, analyzing how these relationships were able to survive the persecution of the Estado Novo and at the same time were at the basis of the sustainability of these political and military combats. Both love and resistance will be seen in a broad and comprehensive way, we will look for stories between couples, but also between parents and children, between comrades and the most disadvantaged.
In relation to the fight against dictatorship and Portuguese colonialism, testimonies from people who were in hiding, in exile, but also those who were part of the liberation movements of the former Portuguese colonies and also small acts of resistance in everyday life will be investigated.
