After Banda Sonora and A Reconquista de Olivenza, the playwright and director Ricardo Neves-Neves and the pianist and composer Filipe Raposo meet again and join the Orquestra Metropolitana de Lisboa in O Livro de Pantagruel. Once again, they create a fantasy universe, full of delusions and extravagances, black humor and many other shades. It’s about cannibalism, this show, literal or not. And about the manipulation of the human body and the manipulation of the other. It’s about revenge and about love, however cruel it can be. There is no lack of betrayal in this plot, but there is also a lot of romance. Inspired by stories such as Gargantua and Pantagruel, Hansel and Gretel, Sweeney Todd, Dracula, Frankenstein and many others, the scene is filled with small and large monsters that are as amusing as they are frightening: a Pantagruel in high heels, red lipstick and long hair. armed, a young Nosferatu in professional training, a rockabilly Hansel and a Gretel ready for survival games, two fetuses of twins with memories of past lives on the Euribor… Along the way, recipes are given for making sailors and moralists in principle career, trade unionist fists, peas with poached eyes and other cannibal delicacies such as that. It is time for devouring and tasting, swallowing and digestion. The meal is served, bon appetit.
