Description

Starting from Paula Rego’s work to reflect on the situation of women in Portugal,  A Beleza do Grotesco is a visual theatre performance where the feminine presence and its psychological complexity are presented to us through characters with strong physicality and dramatic impact, in a constant exploration and transformation of space and the use of stage elements.
