Curated by Projecto Teatral

Projecto Teatral is the name of a collective that has been in activity since 1994 and currently consists of João Rodrigues, Maria Duarte, Helena Tavares, André Maranha and Gonçalo Ferreira de Almeida. Their successive proposals have embodied a way of thinking about the condition of the theatre, its premises and foundations. They dispense with (or call into question) theatrical conventions, challenging the habits and expectations normally associated with these. Many of their works involve the absence of elements that are traditionally understood as constituent parts of the theatre: absence of actors, absence of voices, absence of a text. This process of defamiliarisation is matched by a movement of deterritorialisation: the group frequently works in spaces that are not designed for so-called theatrical representations and events. This exhibition brings together six works produced over the last fifteen years. A chance to plunge deep into the work of Projecto Teatral, provided by the symbiotic collaboration between Teatro Maria Matos and Culturgest.
