Margarida Mestre dives into the sea to create a performance filled with questions for children: ”What happens in reality and in our imagination when we relate to the sea, that liquid immensity, something that has as much within as it has outside, something that provokes attraction as well as fear, something that gave us so much History, that gives us so many stories, and makes us make so many more? How do we dive now in that infinite matter? How do we bring that to shore in words, in experience, as a vision? We are like the sea. In constant agitation…”

Parallel programme to Marinho, for schools attending the performance:

Oficinas Marinhas
25 to 28 February

Workshop presenting the materials from Marinho: how the idea was born, how it was designed and executed in materials done live. What is our relationship with the sea from different points of view, like Geography, History, Biology and physical experience… Experiences with drawing, sound, movement and thought around details who are part of the dramaturgy on stage.

These sessions take place at the schools who have booked this activity

Marin is what comes from the sea. And the sea is life! The sea gives life! But the immense ocean is at risk and our life depends on its life. There are species that disappeared others who are appearing, like the Plasticus Maritimus. What is it? Where did it come from? Let’s discover the good things the sea provides us and what we can do to save it.
