Teatro Aveirense celebrates dramaturgy with Festival Novos Bardos

Teatro Aveirense/Câmara Municipal de Aveiro organizes, for the first time, Festival Novos Bardos III, between the 11th and 15th of December. It’s the third edition of this initiative, which celebrates Portuguese dramaturgy and aims to promote and encourage writing for theater in Portugal.

The event will feature meetings of playwrights, bringing together different authors to reflect on national dramaturgy and the forms of organization necessary for a stronger theatrical creation and with greater impact on our communities. One of these meetings will be attended by American playwright Heather Raffo.

Festival Novos Bardos also includes two Translation and Dramaturgy Laboratories, on the 13th and 14th of December. The first laboratory will be around the work “Noura”, by Heather Raffo, and will be attended by the author and guests from the University of Minho. The one on the 14th will be dedicated to “Weight”, by Marco Demian Vitanza, with the participation of students from the Cascais School of Arts and Filomena Louro, director of the Masters in Translation and Multilingual Communication at the University of Minho.

The laboratories are aimed at an audience interested in dramaturgy. Participation in them involves registration via email at agenio@cm-aveiro.pt, sending your curriculum vitae and a text explaining your interest in attending the laboratory.

Associated with Festival Novos Bardos is the show “Hamlet, o Musical”, staged by Marcos Barbosa, based on a text by Jacinto Lucas Pires, and whose performance is scheduled for December 14th, at 9:30 pm. The play, open to the general public by purchasing a ticket, investigates the Hamletian monument, from the perspective of Horace with a History, in musical mode. What happens in Horatio's mind when his dying friend asks him to tell his story, so that Hamlet won't be left as a “wounded name”? And how does Horacio take advantage of this opportunity? These are some of the questions that the public will be able to see answered in an unexpected show.
