Centro Cultural de Lagos Tue 17 OCT, 10h30 and 14h30 Teatro das Figuras, Faro Wed 25 OCT, 10h00 and 11h30 Theatre / 70' / M12 Limited to 2 classes
This performance is a lecture on the impact of a single story. A single story is the only narrative we take for granted or as the only possibility for a particular event. The story we learn at school speaks of heroes, kings and queens, admirals and other people who by their action or thought, have been described in history, the vast majority of whom being men who have died for some time. It is a unique, official, with pomp and circumstance history.
What if ordinary people like you and we could tell history? In our conference we stem from stories we know well, our stories. We cross our stories with the stories of other people and the history of a country, over a certain period of time, the time of our life.
