Audio Description

17 December, Saturday, 15h and 20h


In Má Educação – Peça em 3 Rounds, the stage is transformed into a boxing ring. A grand piano accompanies the fights as a neutral referee who dialogues with those who are facing each other and also with the music you hear. On stage, a dancer, an actress and a child, three different generations that come into play in different tensions and disputes: who teaches what to whom? Who prepares whom and for what future? Who accepts to withdraw to make way for another who arrives? A mirror of Education: the tension between teachers and students, between future and past, between the school that exists and the one we want. A show by Inês Barahona and Miguel Fragata, with choreography by Victor Hugo Pontes, where theater and dance seek the revolution that will make the future.
