«Liberdade, Liberdade» - ATEF


11th of May | 6:30 p.m. | Jonh dos Passos Cultural Center

A musical and documentary show about the struggle and the history of humanity. A play by the Funchal Experimental Theatre Association (ATEF).

About 100 characters that will allow you to review and revalidate this theme, applying it to the current reality. On stage, the actors experience the interpretation of classical texts by such authors as: Abraham Lincoln, Anne Frank, Bertolt Brecht, Carlos Drummond de Andrade, Castro Alves, Danton, Marat, Robespierre, Federico Garcia Lorca, George Büchner, Gil Vicente, Jesus Christ, William Shakespeare, Martin Luther King, Michel Focault, Molière, Natália Correia, Vinicius de Moraes, Herberto Helder, Peter Weiss, Plato, Socrates, Thomas Moore and Winston Churchill, among others.

The texts and songs document the theme of Liberty, the fruit of the struggles of man from the Classical Antiquity to our day, passing through emblematic moments such as the slave struggle in Rome, the escape of slaves from Egypt musically treated by Verdi, or the songs of the French Revolution, the Mexican Revolution and even the Spanish Civil War.

This production marks the celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Portuguese revolution – April 25th, and is part of the programming of the independent commission for the celebrations of April 25 in the Região Autónoma da Madeira.
