Ivan is eaten by a crocodile. The unusual thing is he survives, unscathed, inside the stomach of the exotic animal. All the attempts to remove him proved to be unsuccessful, as a result of the bureaucracy in a country politically and economically upside-down. Rui Neto rewrites the short story KroKodil, by Dostoievski, drawing a parallel with Portugal today, in a performance with a live original score.
