"Chochman" is a word that is part of theatrical slang. According to Sousa Bastos' Diccionario do Theatro Portugues, when an actor or actress didn't know the text, they would repeat this word quickly and unintelligibly, filling in the blank.
The idea of having to say something in theatre may perhaps find in Chochman a new form of presentation. Based on the text "Suspiro" by José Maria Vieira Mendes, this "Chochman" comes to say what it doesn't want to say. So, come and see us saying. Even if it is... Chochma
