It’s opening night. Molière’s The Misanthrope will be performed for the first time in Portugal before the King and the entire court and the show is far from being ready. There is a group of actors, together for mysterious and diverse reasons, with their nerves on edge, willing to do a lot – or everything – even before they hear Molière’s blows. There is a man who has an aversion to human beings, who does not like social interaction, who is melancholic, unsociable, misanthropic, sullen, a snitch (in Priberam dictionary). There is, above all, the fervent desire to attend court and please the King. The crucial question is: “what happy chance brought you to this place?” By Hugo van der Ding and Martim Sousa Tavares Directed by: Mónica Garnel Cast: Ana Guiomar, Inês Vaz, Joana Bernardo, João Vicente, José Neves, Manuel Coelho, Manuel Moreira, Mário Coelho Scenography and costumes: Marta Carreiras Lighting design: Rui Monteiro Sound design and sound design: João Pratas Original music: Vitória Staging assistance: Ana Água Scenography and costume assistance: Martim Rodrigues Creation support: Inês Vaz Image: (c) Filipe Ferreira Production: Teatro Nacional D.

In this show, viewers are invited to embark on an emotional and introspective journey through the different phases of human existence. From the fragile moment of birth, we explore the innocence of childhood, the turbulence of adolescence, the complexity of adulthood, and the wisdom of old age. However, life is more than a mere linear path, and so we enter the depths of grief, where we face pain, longing and acceptance of loss. It is during these challenging phases that we discover that life is truly an eternal cycle. As we delve into the abyss of grief, we find resilience, strength, and the ability to be reborn. The Cycle of Life show is a celebration of the human experience, a tribute to our ability to overcome challenges and a reminder that, despite losses, life continues to flow like a constant river, allowing us to create new stories and memories. Through gymnastic movements, dance and music, this sincere performance invites the audience to reflect on the beauty of existence, the ephemerality of life and the importance of living fully, honoring the past and embracing the future. The Cycle of Life is a tribute to the journey of each of us and […]

Three people meet. They are not from the same place, nor do they have the same language. It may not be easy to communicate, but there are many ways to make ourselves understood and make the strange familiar. There are universal sounds, gestures and feelings capable of dispelling all misunderstandings and making us laugh at what sounds different. The important thing is that there is someone willing to learn Strange. And, of course, someone who likes peanuts… DO YOU SPEAK STRANGE?
