Alexandre Farto AKA Vhils at the National Theatre D. Maria II
coordination Carlos Vargas
year 2015
price €18,00
Where are the memories in this building with its immaculate walls and carpeted, silent floors? Where are the memories of its actresses, actors and their voices? We have invited Alexandre Farto to work on the walls of the theatre, in the heart of Lisbon. Could the National Theatre work as a metaphor for the (im)perfect city? This book brings together Vhils' work in the Salão Nobre in September 2014, seen through the eye of photographer Paulo Catrica, together with texts by António Mega Ferreira, Vitor Pavão dos Santos and Carlos Vargas.

 


Memorator
author Paulo Catrica
year 2015
price €21,00
This visual essay proposes a theory about D. Maria II’s memory and space, summoning different genres and kinds of photography, from different eras. Starting from the present and rescuing historical photographs from several archives, this photographic atlas projects a building from the ‘new’ theatre and from the ‘other’ theatre, but it doesn’t pretend to illustrate, nor to rebuild this edifice, nor what exists today and what was consumed by the fire in 1964.

Graça Morais: Scenarios and Costumes

coordination Cristina Faria and Jorge da Costa
year 2016
price €10,00
Graça Morais' succint but dazzling theatrical work has had a vital presence in the past of the D. Maria II. That presence continues as the theatre is a place of creation that firmly emphasises the importance of preserving heritage and disseminating its collection. For the 1995 performance of Richard II, not only did the painter create the meticulous costumes but also 8 monumental screens that have become an indelible part of Portuguese theatre's recent history.

Contemporary portuguese theatre : experimentalism, politics and utopia : working title

coordination Rui Pina Coelho
year 2017
price €22,00
The chosen heirs to the experimental projects and the expression of creative freedom that Portuguese theatre successfully achieved during the 1980s and 1990s, the generation of Portuguese theatre makers born for the most part in the 1970s, has been enjoying increasing visibility and importance on both the national and international level. Transcending their forerunners' inability to achieve any effective presence on the international circuits, many of these creators have become quite regular fixtures at many of the most important theatre festivals around the world. Without undermining the singularity of the artistic work carried out by any of the theatrical creators, companies, or structures for theatrical production in question, what has come to the fore are thematic axes, shared concerns, various modes for approaching great formal and aesthetic proximity, and the continuous movement of artists between different projects. 





Monday

author Cláudia Dias and António Jorge Gonçalves
year 2018
price €12,00
The play Monday: attention to the right! premiered in Germany in 2016. In Europe, the assimetry between northern and southern economies continued. In the world, the neoliberal creed had more and more followers. This work is about the fight against profiteering, the moral and physic resistance to oppression, the capacity of responding, the necessity of asking questions and the will to keep going.


 

      

Tuesday

author Cláudia Dias and António Jorge Gonçalves
year 2018
price €12,00
The play Tuesday: all that is solid dissolves in the air premiered one year after the first one of this series. Europe not only continued with the neoliberal dogma, it showed an even more condemnable face. For some years, thousands of african immigrants died trying to cross the Mediterranean, and others were kept in refugee camps to be deported. Now there were joined by the Syrian refugees, who made their way on foot, trying to reach Turkey. 50 years after the foundation of the State of Israel, the Middle East conflict reached the European continent.












Wednesday

author Cláudia Dias
year 2018
price €12,00
The play Wednesday debuted in June, at the Alkantara Festival 2018, and had as a guest artist the Portuguese stage director and puppeteer Igor Gandra. The stage is a huge hole in the center of the stage, as if a giant iron ball had fallen on the floor. When creating the scenic space with the same building material used in thousands of houses in Portuguese, to start to deconstruct, Cláudia and Igor make a direct allusion to everything or that is varied down in the western carpet. Despite the fact that aerial bombers by military soldiers are now easily visible on the Internet or on TV, a connection between our homes and the craters opened by several other sides is not the same.
