A Morte de Raquel is the life story of a woman born in the 20th century who dies in the 21st century, a woman who, among other things, was a daughter, sister, woman, Portuguese citizen, artist, wife, mother and a wavy haired animal.
A Morte de Raquel is a biography that stems from the imagined death of Raquel Castro (director of this performance) that happens in the year 2080 at 99 years of age. In this attempt to tell her life, Raquel will confront her past life until 2020 (the show’s premiere year) with her future life until 2080, colliding the real past with the infinite possibilities of an imagined future.
