“Projecto_Banheira, more than one attempt to create a world apart, what could be an easy escape for a closer dialogue with a young audience, is rather an intense dramaturgical exercise, both in terms of text and images.”
Tiago Bartolomeu Costa, Do lugar de onde se vê –
sobre o trabalho do teatro meia volta e depois à esquerda quando eu disser
Projecto_Banheira departs from an enunciation – a piece of reality as suggestion for the construction of a possible world. The bathtub as an object of daily use fulfils a purpose of functionality. But as any object that crosses our day-to-day life, the same bathtub is surrounded by a tight net of connotations that makes it transcend its status as an object and become a symbol. This happens mainly because we relate a living dimension to the bathtub – our own.
