Special Price Trilogy
- > BOOKING
SynopsisReligion and Morality is the name of a discipline we never had, and which brings us an imaginary of donkey ears and spanking paddles. In order to construct the script for this show, we also revisit our trips to the catechism, the mystical experiences of childhood, the choral repertoire of Saturday afternoon mass, and Buddhist practice; confronting personal memories with the concept of social anomie developed by Émile Durkheim, which points to the loss of identity in current societies as a consequential phenomenon of the reduction of religious impact on our lives. If we kill God, if we kill man, if we kill nature, what is left?
O Pessoal é Político trilogy also includes Medo e Feminismos and Amor e Política.

Maria Gil(Lisbon, 1978) Creates stripped-down shows based on the word, establishing a direct and close relationship with the spectators; her scripts have as their starting point, autobiographical premises and stories of people and places, which she gathers, intersects and fictionalizes, in order to construct a poetics of daily life. Her work evokes the periphery and marginality, but also vanishing people and places. She collaborates regularly with artists from various artistic fields, namely dance, music, the visual arts and cinema. She also works with several public and private institutions, conceptualizing, developing and directing educational activities and strategies which stimulate the imagination and thought.
