Walk through several places inside the Theatre



Age Restriction

target audience: 3 to 10 years old / preschool and 1st cycle


It is true and well known that in any theatre, unusual and astonishing things, sometimes inexplicable things happen. At São Luiz, shoes appear and disappear.  And, every time they are spotted it is to unveil the stories of the people who walked the Theatre. They are shy and if there is too much noise they will make themselves scarce. Some people have spotted them in the foyer, the stage, the control room, or the auditorium, the corridors, the dressing-rooms, or even in the ceiling, in the box office or the elevator. Since the 2016 / 2017 our younger audience (but not just them…) have been presented with this performance tour that unveils the stories of São Luiz. Walking through several places in the Theatre, we run into the shoes of a wonderful French actress, a very provocative Portuguese actor, Mr Luiz himself, the hunchback projectionist, a very famous futurist who manifested here and those who, in the backstage, help us daily to get the shows on their feet. Which of these will we be fortunate to see we will not know until the day of the performance.
