The new season of Rede Eunice will bring to the Municipal Theater of Portimão (TEMPO) three major productions with the seal of the Teatro Nacional D. Maria II.

The theater play “Quarto Minguante”, staged by Álvaro Correia based on a text by Joana Bértholo, is the first of three productions to be presented this semester in Portimão and will go on stage at TEMPO on February 2, at 21 pm.

Cristina Carvalhal, Gustavo Salvador Rebelo, José Neves, Manuel Coelho, Paula Mora, Rita Rocha and Sílvio Vieira give life to the first text out of the Writing Laboratory for Theater, promoted by the Teatro Nacional D. Maria II, which, after debuting in Lisbon, last November, now presents itself in Portimão as part of the Eunice Network, the project for the dissemination of shows produced and co-produced by that national structure.

“Seven characters in very different situations, but united by the same impasse: they are not doing well, and that doesn't mean they do anything to change. They fear that the new will be even worse.” This is the theme of the play, where excerpts from texts by Antonin Artaud, Diógenes Laércio, Franz Kafka, Mahatma Gandhi, Malcom X, Mario Vargas-Llosa, Marquis de Sade and Voltaire will be read.
