A play that was included in the rich schedule of street theater at the Almada Theater Festival. The festival is located within the site of the future Almada Theatre, an area dominated by dense housing blocks. Our inspiration was to use the existing buildings around the place as the scenography of the play. To improve audience perspective, increase the buildings dominance and provide a boundary, we dug a hole in the ground. This provided texture and the smell of earth, creating the possibility for a more comfortable and immersive experience.
