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.
When we write for children, are we also writing about our childhoods? Through texts by Maria Regina Louro, Zulmira Oliva, Vitorina Agostinho, Celina Pereira, Deolinda da Conceição and Matilde Rosa Araújo, children’s thoughts about the world are embraced and it is proposed to listen and reflect on housekeepers’ lives , about the nights of girls hugging dolls, about the dawn of women cuddled up to their children, about women who, without anyone publicly admiring them, clean and dream the world.
