2 Dec. 6PM - Theatre m/16
Casa da Mákina
A condemned man, bearing his chest open and testifying about the events of his uncompromised existence, indifferent to the judgement of others, presents himself as an “Other-Foreigner” in the eyes of the “I-Self”, digging a pit where he might pour his viscerally corporeal nature.
Without a lawyer to defend him and restrain his subjectivity, without faith to support him and deceive him about his own finitude, placing himself under the judgement of his counterparts. Within a sandbox, where each grain is an ""I-Self"" among millions of others, as if mirroring a permanently eroding humanity whose foundations are nothing more than castles by the sea.
Oficina de Ideias das Terras do Oeste (OITO) is a multidisciplinary structure with a particular focus on theatre creation and training, which boasts projects such as Os qu'emigraRAM and O Infinito Estrangeiro, as well as the Oficina de Teatro da Calheta, which has been active since 2020. Moreover, it produced TÚNEL 8 – Festival das Artes, whose first edition took place in 2023.
