Desta Carne Lassa do Mundo
AND THIS WORLD MEAT SHAKE THE YOKE OF STARS DISMAL
Using Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet original words, this play is set in the actuality to explore the romantic teenager myth in an urban reality and to question the idea – or the experience – of unconditional love.
Having fun in a disco, Romeo’s entourage and Juliet’s entourage meet while dancing and drinking, in a real ‘warm up’ with the audience and with each other, playing and being played, kissing and missing, living quickly and loosing so fast as life flows at the rhythm of a big city. With this dramaturgy, more than talking about love, we’ll explore the problematic of desire, the sense of erosion of love in the modern society. Death becomes insignificant when confronted with the experience of happiness brought by love, the real fuel for life – even if fleeting.
