Porcupines all steamed up at the sun, who insists on setting every day, irascible rhinos and elephants who think that the other should stray from their path, crayfish that sell furies of all sizes. In Fúrias, Patrícia Portela and Célia Fechas take the work of the Dutch author and philosopher Toon Tellegen, and like traveling saleswomen, set up a stall to sell furies to whomever needs them. With a smokescreen behind them, where several different furies are projected and visualised, ten stories of past and future rages are told, presenting a catalogue of furies that is transacted with the public and built according to the needs of each one. A show where we talk about all kinds of little tiffs and pouts at other people, life, ourselves, from that difficult and vulnerable place that is to get angry, disagree, hurt or suffer from our afflictions and those who are one of ours.
After Por Amor, premiered in 2017, this is Patricia Portela’s second play about an emotion, Fúria. Fear (based on the Aventuras de João Sem Medo), Frustration, Betrayal and Generosity will follow.
