Summoning Ovid, Adélia Prado, Shakespeare, O’Neill, Stendhal, Barthes or even Plato, Patrícia Portela and Leonor Barata think about the place of romance in today’s society through the dramas and misfortunes of Helen of Troy. In a discussion on vulnerability, frailty, stupidity, but also on the beauty and the strength of being in love by other people, someone else, or by the lives of other or different places, this duo travels through enchantment, cynicism, bitterness, but also through innocence and the revolution love brings when we find it or we don’t know it. Living inside the same love story in different ways, Por Amor! Is a meeting-performance For Love and For yes.
