At the Torre do Tombo, Portugal’s national archive, theatre maker Tiago Rodrigues found an incredibly large compilation of material related to theatre during the fascist regime that ruled the country for 48 years. The irony behind Três Dedos abaixo do Joelho is that it transforms censors into playwrights, using the censors’ reports as the text for a theatre performance where actors and video form a poetic and absurd censoring-machine.
