Royal Wedlock, a final stanza




"Will Will live to such a tragic fate?
A murdered mother and no right to hate -
A duty to country and to Diana, the late."



['Not Hamlet' Act I]

Theatre - Museum Colloquy







"The impredictability of the Theatre and its live and irreproducible nature are magnified and it's possibilities expanded to new limits when we put the theatrical performance in the context of a museum were disturbance is not allowed and even Time seems to stand still."


"We feel safe in museums, everything in them relates to organization and tranquility and our place in a rational world.
We go to the theatre to lost control and get in touch with our innermost fears and basic impulses."

Liberdade

Ai que prazer
Não cumprir um dever,
Ter um livro para ler
E não o fazer!
Ler é maçada,
Estudar é nada.
O sol doira
Sem literatura.
O rio corre, bem ou mal,
Sem edição original.
E a brisa, essa,
De tão naturalmente matinal,
Como tem tempo não tem pressa...

Livros são papéis pintados com tinta.
Estudar é uma coisa em que está indistinta
A distinção entre nada e coisa nenhuma.

Quanto é melhor, quando há bruma,
Esperar por D. Sebastião,
Quer venha ou não!

Grande é a poesia, a bondade e as danças...
Mas o melhor do mundo são as crianças,
Flores, música, o luar, e o sol, que peca
Só quando, em vez de criar, seca.

O mais do que isto
É Jesus Cristo,
Que não sabia nada de finanças
Nem consta que tivesse biblioteca...

Fernando Pessoa

Chernobyl Now












Many of us have one great advantage: we were born outside the nuclear age and we should use that. No one else will have this advantage. The advantage is that it enables us to use our will without the compulsions of modern technology forcing our hands. If we don´t abolish nuclear weapons now it will become increasingly harder for our children to abolish them: they will have accepted them into their societies in a way without the shock - or the venomous triumph - with which we had to relate to them.

Edward Bond, 14 May 1987

Theatre - Museum Colloquy






"Museums are popular because they represent the security of knowledge, beauty and truth and the power of the State.
As the modern spulchres of the past they are viewed as houses of perfection.

Theatre is the most imperfect of all arts, always to be finished and to be done. A short ephemeral act that operates by lies in order to tell it's truth."

Theatre - Museum Colloquy


"Museum & Theatre are the principal dream houses of the collective"


"The Museum and the Theatre seem opposite and antagonic worlds but they share the same vital concern with Time and Memory"
Theatre - Museum Colloquy | Porto 27. 03. 2011
