SuperNatural is a journey that begins in the frame and ends in the meme. The starting point is a painting by Magritte, “Le secret du cortège” (The secret of the procession) that the show not only looks as inhabits it, in the same way that a theater stage is inhabited. This occupation allows the invention of movement on the canvas, the passage of time in painting. The landscape escapes immobility, travels, reproduces itself, the frame falls apart, disappears, changes, is appropriate, changes into a meme.
There are two ways of dealing with the “natural”: refusing or expanding it. SuperNatural expands, of course, because it wants to occupy and then overcome and hyperbolize. The show wants to be a place to discover itself, returning the responsibility to those who inhabit it.
This show results from the collaboration of Teatro Praga (André e. Teodósio) with the interpreters of the company Dançando com a Diferença.
