My Europe / A Minha EuropaTheatre
Play spoken in Portuguese and English, subtitled in both languages.
A play by Isabel Mões
Production: Produções Acidentais
This show follows the life path of an English boy born in Birmingham, England, who came with his family to live in Portugal at the ends of the 80s and a Portuguese girl whose family emigrated to London. The protagonists go through their own stories, reflecting on the social and political changes that they have witnessed and the transformation caused by the so-called weight of the modern European state. The conflict between the actual experienced memory and the idealised one of these two countries, constantly related to images (photos, postcards and videos), also allows us to think about the times that Europe is experiencing currently.
This is the first in a series of works that aims to relate personal history with the history of different European countries. The next show will come out in 2019 and will focus on the relationship between France and Germany.
June 3rd, after the show, there will be a talk with the audience.
