Starting from the theme of the sea and the diverse relationship of the artists who live in Portugal or in Cape Verde, Isabel Barros, proposes a play for public space, created with Carlos Guedes, based on the assumption: how much the sea is in me and in the other. The choice of the actress Lisa Reis, born in S.Vicente, reinforces this research on the look of someone who was born in a country surrounded by sea. Putting prayers on lips, it is a project of spoken word, music and gesture.
Artist, co-founder of balleteatro (1983), artistic director of Teatro de Marionetas do Porto since 2010 and of the Museu das Marionetas do Porto opened in February 2013.
