AUDIENCE AWARD - VIATHEA 2018, GERMANY
How to write a love story, of a lasting love in time, filling a life till its twilight, and never ending for whom who still beholds the past?
The writing of this love story does not begin upon the heroic deaths of Romeo and Juliet, it flows out of an old couple’s entire life, for whom love is that very whole fully accomplished life.
One’s DEATH haunts with solitude the life of the other. A solitude which the strength of the remembrances turns phantoms alive, not giving up on loving the remaining one, zealous guardian angels, invisible lovers whose kisses are made of wind.
The one who left is now invisible, though his soul blesses the one who stayed, inhabiting the breath of the one who loved him, waiting for the reencounter, knowing that life still goes on for the remaining one.
Solitude is a recurring theme in the plays of “teatro só.” However, the characters are not touched by despair, but rather by the reflection of gestures and the gratitude of memory. There is not a better word to define this work then “recordação,” which French origin “re-coeur” simply means re-heart, that is, letting it passed through the heart, again, one more time - TEATRO SÓ
