“He who searches for a just relationship with the stone, the tree, the river, is necessarily driven by the spirit of truth which impels him to search for a just relationship with man.”
Sophia de Mello Breyner Andresen
From A Menina do Mar, by Sophia de Mello Breyner Andresen, and Bernardo Sassetti’s music, actress Carla Galvão and the pianist and composer Filipe Raposo create a poetic universe on stage, with the help of Beatriz Bagulho’s illustrations and animations: “To tell this story as if you were entering a very important house for you, trying to imprint in your visual and audio memory its architecture. To tell this story like someone trying to preserve the profound beauty of things. Knowing, nevertheless, that they undo themselves like the waves of the sea or the sand dunes. To tell this story like someone imprinting words in music and music in words, in order to build the ‘white house in front of the huge ocean, with your garden of sand and maritime flowers’”.
