Up this river

 

With this creation, SAMarionetas intends to pay homage to two masterpieces of Portuguese culture - A Peregrinação by Fernão Mendes Pinto and the album For this river by Fausto Bordalo Dias - through the puppet theater, following the ideological line of creation of Fausto himself. , converging tradition with modernity. We intend to build a visual material around the listening of this record, crossing different techniques and performing languages. Hear, See and Feel is the proposal.
