March 27th, World Theater Day, free entry to the show Fedra (Não é de Pedra), by Martim Pedroso. Limited to room capacity. Tickets available on the day, at the Teatro São Luiz box office, from 3pm. Session with interpretation in Portuguese Sign Language.


Phaedra, a middle-aged aristocratic woman, the wife of King Theseus, is seized by the desire for her own stepson Hippolytus. An archetype that over the centuries and dramatisations has been the subject of controversy and disgust, but also of reflection, fascination and respect. Phaedra is part of the spectrum of great tragic revolutionary women who go against the rules of society for reasons that have to do with the truth of the body, which is almost always far removed from the truth of reason and morality. This free version is based on passages from authors such as Euripides, Seneca, Racine and Sarah Kane and is looking for its own place in contemporary times.




In this show, actors smoke on stage and there are strobe lights.
