Turning the space of the scene into a cemetery, a bedroom, a coffee we want to evoke fragments of a universe that gradually reveals the absurd, the poetry, the theatre and dance of three characters: Arminda, Cassandra and Jean.
The starting point of Pedra-Pão is the understanding of precariousness as a trigger for reinventing survival conditions.
The set is composed by three sideboards with wheels and three doors, remains of a room and a kitchen that may have belonged to a house, now abandoned.
Imprisoned in an extra-ordinary everyday life the three characters explore the sideboards inside out, its inner side.
