Mil e Uma Noites is a long-term civic and artistic project that, through radio drama, rescues the work of 20th-century Portuguese women from oblivion. Like Xerazade, listeners are lulled into love by a constellation of forgotten, erased, censored and tortured women. Ten listening sessions will take place at the São Luiz Theatre, from themes as distinct as work songs or war letters.
Judith Teixeira saw her work Decadência burned, due to the freedom with which she wrote about her body and the bodies she loved. This session traces, from her, a poetics on the eroticism of the body, for which she also summons the words of Beatriz Rodrigues Barbosa, Maria Helena Barreiro, Fiama Hasse Pais Brandão and Maria Teresa Horta. Between the whisper and the scream, there is a face-to-face talk, eye to eye, about love.
