The thousand-eyed monster is sitting over there. Someone enters the room. Steps on the stage. Climbs up the stairs. Opens doors. Tries to follow the sound of the footsteps she heard before. Her heart is beating fast. So is curiosity. Behind, coming from above… the Shoes… alone. Pareceu-me Ouvir Passos, by Madalena Marques, was born after she attended the performance tour Os Sapatos do Sr. Luiz, and has now a stage version. In this scene play between a woman and a pair of shoes, we see dances at the sound of operas; movies, flashes and journeys; mechanisms and mysteries. During this encounter, projections appear showing the details of the shoes. Stories of theatre in general and of Teatro São Luiz in particular are told. A performance dressed in amazement, discovery, superstition, that introduces us to those who build the hidden world of the theatre: actors and actresses, lighting and sound technicians, movie projectionists and impresarios. They will all come to visit us, step by step.
