Online Stage Reading of the play “Exílio(s)61-74”

In this workshop, directed by Ricardo Correia (Casa da Esquina) , the scenes of the original text (texts, testimonies, videos and soundscape) will guide the participants in order to create an online stage reading, via zoom, during which the process of construction of the debate aims to question the issues related to this Portuguese historical period. The issues of freedom, exile as a gesture of protest, the various mechanisms of struggle, the biographical account as construction of the individual, in the hopes of promoting the debate on freedom, citizenship practices and memory policies.
