The Sagrada Família, a rectangular wooden box containing the images of Joseph, Mary and Jesus, is a small portable oratory. On the left side door, the names of the subscribers who intend to welcome her home and follow the teachings of the Nazaré family are written. The cult dates back to the 15th century and exists in residual form in some villages in the country. This oratory is the scenic element common to the three texts that make up The Holy Family by Elmano Sancho: José, the father; Maria, the mother; Jesus, the son. Maria, the mother, according to a text in the family trilogy, is a text about loss, pain, loneliness, old age, forgetfulness and death.

A few years ago, the celebrated sage Sarastronauta decided to move to a space station, hoping to have the peace and quiet necessary for his incessant search for wisdom. The trick he found to attract men into his world of virtue and wisdom was to create a character called Papageno. Like the original Papageno, it is also captivating due to its fun way of being and talking. His disguise as Papageno is so perfect that not even Pamina, Sarastronaut’s own daughter, recognizes him. This double personality also allows him to obtain precious information from his daughter Pamina regarding his mother, the Queen of the Night. When Tamino appears on the scene, Papageno is precisely with Pamina, and his fascination with the girl is immediate. Trying to know where to find her, Papageno shows her the way to the Orbital Station where she lives with her father, the great sage Sarastronauta. That is, himself. Sarastronaut will not miss this opportunity to bring with him another human soul in need of salvation by wisdom. And you will also find an exquisite son-in-law.

This new production was born out of the desire to continue working on the great classics, continuing the work developed with “Lago dos Cisnes”; and “Sagração da Primavera” by Daniel Cardoso, relating them to today’s life and society. This time the choreographer takes on the challenge of presenting a new creation inspired by “Romeo and Juliet”, one of Shakespeare’s best-known works, and undoubtedly one of the most revisited classics in the history of dramatic literature. Perhaps because Love – in its romantic and absolute conception – that which is unconditional, transcendent and redemptive, continues to be the target of research, astonishment and restlessness. This unexplained place that rescues the most violent emotions, the most overwhelming changes, the most decisive actions. In this approach, it seeks to challenge the centrality of Romeo and Juliet: multiplied in a contemporary vision, in an arena in which everyone, without exception, becomes Romeo and Juliet. In a universe where individually, all men and women intersect in some way in the symbolic journey of these characters, and experience different ways of loving. Also noteworthy is the notion of randomness, or destiny, in this great stage of the social sphere, in which the encounter of genuine Love […]

After “A Freguesia”, with dramaturgy and staging by Ricardo Neves-Neves (in 2017), a show that ended the program commemorating the 100th anniversary of the parish of Quarteira, Cineteatro directed a new invitation to Teatro Do Eléctrico for the creation of a a show based on a theme from the municipality of Loulé: the Mother Sovereign. “Soberana” is a show with text by Ana Lázaro, staged by Ricardo Neves-Neves and musical direction by Rita Nunes, about the history and worship of the Mother Soberana de Loulé, which is celebrated annually on Easter Day (Festa Pequena) and two weeks later (Festa Grande). “As soon as I started researching the Sovereign Mother, I realized that more than a religious, cultural and historical manifestation, this is, like the genetic and intrinsic bond that links the Mother with her son, part of a collective body, of identity of a people. The affiliation of the Louletanos to their Mother is lost in time and space, is rooted in the blood, in the cycles of the seasons, in the daily struggle, in the joy and pain that they live, under an odd intimate connection of protection and complicity. In a relationship of affection deeply divine, and at […]

The Odder Sideshow intends to rescue secular circus techniques, from the golden age of the great Traditional Circuses, but which fell into disuse due to the risk they imply, namely: the throwing of knives, Fire Swallow, Escapism, Blockhead, Juggling with chainsaw and balance on machetes (…) and interconnect them with clown technique and physical theater. This show seeks to reflect on the emotional sadomasochism of contemporary society’s relationships as a binding link for the circus techniques used.
