In children’s imagination, the night is perhaps the first of the great mysteries. The shadows, the darkness, the silence, the street sounds and the movements in the house inspire fantasies, a lot of fears and some fascination. In the children’s universe, night is synonymous with the unknown, on the one hand, and infinite possibility, on the other. Night terrors, monsters under the bed, heavy rain that won’t let you sleep, but also happy dreams, bedtime stories, lullabies, goodnight cuddles, moonlight.

The night is, by definition, a time of fantasy, and it remains that way in our adult life, becoming associated with loneliness, sleeplessness, deviation, but also with intimacy and reflection. For all these reasons, night is ancestrally linked to the artistic world, it rests somewhere between melancholy and transgression.


Victor Hugo Pontes

Teatro Municipal do Porto . Rivoli
13 December 2019

Friday, at 9:00pm

Drama, the new creation by Victor Hugo Pontes, takes as its starting point the play Six Characters in Search of an Author, as The Seagull, by Tchékhov was the starting point for Se Alguma Vez Precisares da Minha Vida, Vem e Toma-a (If You Ever Need My Life, Come And Take It). Victor Hugo Pontes continues his search around the boundaries that separate (or don't) theater and dance, the words and the movement, creating an artistic language that is at the same time peculiar and challenging, for himself and the performers, and for the audience as well.
