from andré braga & cláudia figueiredo and madalena victorino.
Arraial deluxe, a theatre-dance performance.
A poetic glimpse over the North of Portugal with its feasts and pilgrimages, rituals and beliefs, cold winds and harsh air.
St. Amaro, St. Sebastian, Lady of Ó, St. Lazarus, St. Bartholomew… we mostly wished to unveil a very own coexistence of several opposites: sacred and profane, acts of faith and the explosions of the senses, ancient and post-modern, crude and cheesy. In a curious amalgamation, human in its multiple dimensions: faith, pain, fear, death, helplessness, loneliness, laughter, greed, excess, vanity, love, jealousy, violence, communion…
Arraial deluxe is the version of the show with an exclusively professional cast.
Playing live we will have with us again Dead Combo.
