“Now, nineteen actors perform a choreography to the sound of Imagining my Man by Aldous Harding. The audience watches closely; a baby appears on stage. The movements are quite simple, but the rhythm is complex and the music long. Regarding this moment, Bruno said: … I can hardly memorise the movements but dancing with my friends is always a delight.”

in "All the World’s a Stage"


Regarding the celebration of the 150 years of Teatro da Trindade, Marco Martins and Beatriz Batarda propose a reflection on Theatre and the translation processes it entails. Summoning for the stage a group of twenty inhabitants from the city of Lisbon (professional and non-professional actors) of nine different nationalities, the authors work on their individual memories to map out the city.

A game is established from personal histories, questioning the place of the individual, group and dialogue.

Developed over a six months’ work process, “All the World’s a Stage” aims to be a celebration of Theatre as desire to identify with the other and as a place of transformation, using every form of translation to give voice to the memory, the body, and the projection of ourselves in the future.
