Microblog Mondays- Prepapring for the revolution celebrations

Next monday will be the anniversay of the portuguese revolution and the city council was looking for artists, actors, perfomers for an event that morning. And our theatre group applied.

We deo a very special type of interactive theatre called playback theatre, where the audience shares moments of their lives and we play them back for them in a totally improvised way. To prepare for a perfomance we use our own life stories and as we were exploring the theme of the revolution I realised I was the only one in the group who was born at the time (1974). So I had to research quite a bit to finde out themes that have to do with the revolution and that have to do with our everyday life.

Turned out to be quite interesting: opening, justice/injustice, opression…

Really hope it happens…
