BABAR: show with an actor (Ruben Saints) and a pianist (Cândido Fernandes), from the text that introduced the elephant Babar to the world.
Using Jean de Brunhoff’s first story about this well-known and beloved elephant, the words of the French author (with translation and adaptation by Elsa Gomes) interact with the live music composed by Francis Poulenc, to tell us the adventures that led Babar da forest to the city and back to the forest where he will become King of the Elephants.
FALA-BICHO: show with an actor (Ruben Saints) and a pianist (Cândido Fernandes), from a selection of poems from Violeta Figueiredo’s Fala Bicho, with music composed by Eurico Carrapatoso.
The best way to summarize this work is to use Alice Vieira‘s reading: “There are twenty stories, very simple, of animals that talk and play – all in a language that explores and rhymes, the sounds and, of course, the imagination. (…) If there is truly a genre that can be called “children’s poetry“, this must be the one Violeta Figueiredo introduces us to ”(in Diário de Notícias).
