Lydia Jorge’s delicate and striking writing has kept its echo alive since it came to light in the world. The title of this staged reading was stolen from the Costa dos Murmúrios, one of her most vibrant novels, manufactured with words of a Portuguese unused by oblivion. The journey it recounts is always immense, within the book and within those who read it, galloping. Perhaps it is an act of horror to cut her writing in the late afternoon, but those who know how to write can always achieve the magic of extension throughout their work – as if someone who writes, continually maintained the same search, from one book to another.

In 2016, Sara Carinhas organised the Ciclo de Leituras Encenadas in the old Jardim de Inverno, where excerpts of works by Herberto Hélder, José Tolentino Mendonça, Luísa Costa Gomes, Maria Velho da Costa and Matilde Campilho were heard. Once a month, in the late afternoon, interpreters and the public shared Portuguese words in different voices. Four years later, the Sala Bernardo Sassetti receives Um Quarto que Seja Delas – Segundo Ciclo de Leituras Encenadas, with five sessions taking place between September 2020 and January 2021. A proposal comprising more than twenty women, among authors, actresses and artistic team. “We continue with the intent of sharing the literature and the theatre of the small gestures that words demand”, says Sara Carinhas.
