Teatro Nacional D. Maria II | Lisbon [Portugal]


5 ***** is a show that involves the history of portuguese theatre and Teatro Praga (which celebrates, in 2005, 10 years of activity), confering, naming, giving advice in the form of prescriptions on how to build 5 *****, a show that continues its obsession with Nietzschean nihilism (and Artaud, why not), the postmodernism of Derrida, and the search for language and meaning of Steiner, plus Montaigne, Benjamin and Castoriadis which exchanges the said by the unsaid, the laughter by crying, the truth by false, exchange the names themselves, self-questioning, which relies on things without knowing the background story, which opens every day, all the time, more songs, costumes, smoke, smoke a lot (the eternal portuguese dilemma)…

5***** is an hour for celebration, of evocation of old ghosts and new provocation of news ones.
