In Plano Comensal de Leitura, Marta Bernardes makes the challenge: imagine each dining room, each living room and each classroom as an ambitious “national theatre”. Based on the novel by Afonso Cruz Vamos Comprar um Poeta, a story about the importance of Poetry, Creativity and Culture in our lives, that celebrates the beauty of ideas and disinterested actions, the show questions the role of theatre and art in the public thing, reflecting on it from small private and domestic actions that everyone can do, is able or wants to do. On stage, we speak of politics, beauty and utopia with a sense of Humor and a sense of Love.
