HEY YOU: A Summer Act

HEY YOU: A Summer Act

“The best thing about doing a show in the open air is to have the sky as a web of light and the sound of the city as a soundtrack”

Based on the temporal and spatial specificities offered by the TeatroAgosto Festival, Ana Gil & Nuno Leão invited the people of the community of Fundão to build a theatrical object that is assumed as Summer Act.

A device is therefore proposed, of sharing a common space and time, where the focus will be the experience that each viewer lives when witnessing this event.

/MANIFESTO

In our Paradise we can restart.

In our Paradise we can say whatever we want.

In our Paradise there are no tax fraud or financial scandals.

In our Paradise hope does not come in a pack of measures made by a foreign government.

In our Paradise the state budget for culture is of, at least, 1%.

In our Paradise there still is a Festival like TeatroAgosto.

In our Paradise a good feijoada is imperative.

In our Paradise parties smell like sardines.

In our Paradise the streets are full of people.

In our Paradise there are outdoor shows. How?

In TeatroAgosto.
