Teatro de Ferro premieres Uma Coisa Longínqua [A Distant Thing].
Uma Coisa Longínqua [A Distant Thing] is inspired by a dream, in which some sculptures/monuments have decided to abandon the plazas between the great buildings of the metropolises of the planet. After their escape, the works of art gather in the desert in search of other possibilities for their existence in the world of things. The Teatro de Ferro presents the first phase of its new show, with the collaboration of the composer Carlos Guedes, in a film-performance that attempts to understand the strange events starred by a group of emancipated objects.
