Puppet show "Consonância"

This project that brings together two arts that have in common improvisation and the consonance of free movement in musicality and theatricality.

In the year  in which the traditional itinerant Portuguese puppet theater entered Portugal's Intangible Heritage list, José Gil, the performer of this theater from the 18th century, joins pianist Daniel Bernardes on an adventure of sounds and movements, creating an abstract reality in a traditional theatrical parallel with sounds of modernity, creating an unlikely game between a piano and Teatro Dom Roberto.

The presentation includes the pieces "O Barbeiro", "A Tourada", "O Castelo dos Fantasmas", "A Rosa e os Três Namorados" and "O Saloio de Alcobaça".

"Portugal and the colonial wars 1961-1974". Sixty years ago, Portugal started three colonial wars in Africa under Salazar. They ended with the fall of the Salazar / Caetano dictatorship in 1974. What effects did the wars in Angola, Mozambique and Guinea-Bissau have? What did they mean inside the metropolis: for the Portuguese, for the Portuguese economy and for the dictatorial conditions? And: In what way were the two German states, the then FRG and the GDR involved?
