Every year, since Companhia Maior was created in 2010, an invitation is sent to an artist or collective to create a show. In 2020 the guest artist was Marco Martins.  

 

Faced with the impossibility brought by the pandemic to work with the company's cast in a stage play, Marco Martins, in collaboration with Fernanda Fragateiro and Gonçalo M. Tavares, created Ghost Nature. A multidisciplinary installation based on images from the old family albums of its interpreters and long interviews focusing on how domestic images fix and condition our memory, in a constant paradox between a living testimony and a stationary time, life maintained and postponed death. Images that summon childhood, death, the outdated past, a completed and immobile time, but also life’s capture, suspended time, the present past and the surprise.
