Foi este romance que a mala voadora adaptou para teatro, para fazer um espetáculo chamado Pirandello

Plays, from the most ancient to the newest, are raw materials that we manipulate with as much freedom as we feel necessary to the show (text servicing the show and not the other way around).

Impostor

Impostor 2015

In the workplace, three employees dispute the small powers, climbing and descending the stairs of hierarchy. They reveal themselves between reports, memos and the consumables closet, where they keep the anguish of their souls. «Impostor» is a game with absurd rules, in which the goal is to destroy others, inflating the importance of the role they play in the organizations' structure. Confused? They aren't. They know very well that the semiannual bonuses depend on the talent of their every move.

Mostly about his own past. He refers to what might have been familiar in that past and confronts the audience in from of him.

An actor and an actress welcome the audience at the studio-theatre room of the National Theatre Dona Maria II in Lisbon. They are both Portuguese, they have studied theater together and they are part of mala voadora. They aim to please the audience. As everybody does. Generally, the reactions of enjoyment of those whom we please are vital; they are a source of contentment (and how actors do appreciate them!). These two actors will give an account of a full day in the life of Louis XIV, the Sun King, the French ‘Roi-Soleil’.

A Boa Alma

A Boa Alma 2014

“When we were children we had a crane with a lame wing. He was friendly and didn't mind our jokes. He strutted along behind us, crying out to us not to run too fast. But in the fall and in the spring when large swarms of cranes were flying over the village, he became very restless. And I could understand why.”

Romance

Romance 2015

Lígia Soares will experiment with a new solo work another try out for theatrical creation: this time, the speech will not be pre-recorded to support the lack of action, and fiction will no longer be pointed at a woman sitting on a chair wearing a dress, instead it will be projected on a woman dressed as a "chroma key" who, once again, offers up to the public as an intermediary between reality and its "special effects": if it is true that romance was killed by cinema, I won’t sit on a couch, I'd rather get dressed like a prairie so you continue accurately shooting above the skyline.

O Amor dos Infelizes

O Amor dos Infelizes 2014

This is the story of a dwarf woman living in the shadow of the pity of a small provincial town’s inhabitants. The dwarf, only about eighty centimeters tall, with a gangly and clumsy walk, always moaning with pain, was for other women but a creeping being, like a child who never grows up. She wasn’t a person really, they said. Her existence was limited, in the eyes of others, to her deformity, her monstrosity, the insurmountability of that body. She lived on the remains of big people, on their possible love. The love of the unfortunate.

Comunidade 2014

“What a powerful beast, this one, a voracious and tentacular animal lying asleep here with its arms and legs spread all over like an octopus: an eccentric octopus, with no central head, no natural conformation; a huge, shapeless mass breathing through various mouths, resting (abandoned) and sleeping, sighing, groaning, sometimes whining.

philatélie

philatélie

A stamp collection was the starting point. Its iconography is both theme and visual protagonist of the show. The stamps – magnified and projected on a screen – start off by being an object of philatelic and historical analysis and later become agents of novelistic wanderings, including a recreation of the Portuguese arrival in Japan.

Conspurcados

Conspurcados 2014

Sullied deals with the notion of purge processes, of exorcism, the getting rid of the prevailing of appearences. Sullied bodies, impure bodies, abject bodies, bodies on the virge of being consumed by the voracity of the images they produce. There is, nevertheless, a certain beauty and atraction for the excess, for searching for the limits, for the process of questioning what they project for the outside: like a game of decaying identities looking for a possible reconstitution.

O decisivo na política não é o pensamento individual, mas sim a arte de pensar a cabeça dos outros (disse Brecht)

Primeiro espectáculo de um ciclo sobre identidade, tem o formato de um comício. Excertos de discursos de múltiplos chefes de estado do século XX (de Estaline a Mandela, de Mussolini a Arafat) sucedem-se sem que se perceba onde acaba um e começa o seguinte, independentemente do que julgamos ser a pertinência de cada.

To stage Albert Camus’ “The Justs” – a confrontation of ethical perspectives on sacrificial deaths motivated by an ideal of world transformation - a connection was established between, on one hand, the attempts made by the members of the terrorist group in order to accomplish the attack on the Grand Duke and, on the other, the attempts made by the group of actors in staging the show.

mala voadora

A mala voadora opera num triângulo entre (1) a experiência de fazer teatro reequacionando, a cada novo espetáculo, o que esse “teatro” pode ser; (2) a invenção de eventos e programas nos quais se juntam artistas e/ou se juntam artistas e outras pessoas; e (3) o uso de um antigo armazém na Rua do Almada, no Porto, com vários espaços de trabalho e residência. Foi fundada, em 2003, por Jorge Andrade (encenador, ator e dramaturgo) e José Capela (cenógrafo e arquiteto), responsáveis pela direção artística, aos quais se juntaram Vânia Rodrigues como coordenadora de gestão e programação, e Joana Costa Santos como responsável pela direção de produção.

A mala voadora é apoiada bienalmente pelo Ministério da Cultura / Direção Geral das Artes, e é estrutura associada d’O Espaço do Tempo e da ZDB.
