29 September , Sunday 11h


Cláudia Gaiolas  continues the Antiprincesas cycle, that began from the book collection published by Tinta da China and EGEAC, and who will this season premiere two plays on Portuguese women who left a mark in history. This work is revolutionising the way we look at boys and girls, teenagers, women and men. Here everyone is equally fierce, fragile, curious, delicate and adventurous/. These inspiring characters are presented without ceremony. They are the protagonists, narrators of their own adventures and inventors of games and play.

Clarice Lispector was born in Ukraine, in a village so small and meaningless it’s not even on the maps. Her parents fled the war and ended in Brazil, where Clarice grew up and became a big writer. She wrote about the mysteries of the universe and of the human soul, but also about runaway chicken, thinking rabbits and a dog who ate cigarettes.
