SARA INÊS GIGANTE
I decided to do this show after a phone call I had with my mother. I was speaking with her about my impotence. More specifically, we spoke for an hour about ways I could get my own house. The most viable solution, and one of those that always impressed me the most for several reasons, would be to buy some land on the outskirts of Lisbon, and buy a prefabricated house. I realized that what seemed the most viable solution, was still a long way from being viable. Or perhaps not…
We finished our call and I went looking for land on the internet.
Then I researched prefabricated houses, their prices and characteristics.
Then I researched how to get a home loan.
Then I researched whether banks would lend me money for this.
Then I thought. I thought a lot.
Then I decided I would do the show.
And then, of course, I called my mother again.
