Teatro do Montemuro and Absolute Theatre

Photo: Andrea Heselton

Clown/physical theatre | Without language
Age guide: 6+ | 60 min.

It’s the end of the world. Petty human conflicts have lead to humanities complete annihilation and the four Horsemen of the apocalypse gallop to Earth as the harbingers of the end of times.
Except, one of them didn’t turn up.
Despite the foreboding premise, the piece is funny and uplifting – the clowns fail to bring about the apocalypse and instead create the universe within the theatre – with the assistance of the audience.



12th August | Sunday | 16h30 and 21h30

Music/theatre | Language: Portuguese
Age guide: 12+ | 75 min.

A show that honors the women who live behind the scenes of the lives of so many musicians.
The unusual set of oboe, bassoon and euphonium that accompanies the original songs, brings to the show the philharmonic reminiscences that illustrate the familiar context of the life of the central character, Auntie Graça, but with a transversal and sophisticated musical language for all ages.



15th August | Wednesday | 21h30 [SOLD OUT]
Eis o Homem [Here’s the Man]
Teatro da Palmilha Dentada

Theatre | Language: Portuguese
Age guide: 16+ | 90 minutes with break

“Eis o Homem” has three unconnected moments, with absurdity to the mix and space for impromptu. The result is a show that is never the same.
In this collective creation, controversial issues are addressed and reflected on the pertinence of life and human dynamics, but always based on improvisation and humor.

Theatre | Language: Portuguese

This show tells the story of a man and a herd of elephants. When the man dies, the elephants make a mysterious walk to his house to pay him a last tribute: he was not any man, he was one of them.
