About me


(Instructions to Make a Theatre Piece) - if you want to live, read it

Based on the book Cronópios and Famas from the Argentinian author Julio Cortázar, the piece follows the story of three characters, who decided to create a manual for life that can be split into three different parts: the relation of one individual with him/herself, with the world around them and with death. Created through a collaborative process, the piece uses day-to-day situations to approach deep questions of humanity, such as the incertitude of death and the challenges of alterity.
