Aconteceu-me um Poema

Aconteceu-me um Poema
Direction: Rui Spranger
Performance: 2nd year Theatre Students

"Vaivém - Encontro de teatro e dança junior” is a program that has as its premise the "School meets the School" at a crossroads between young balleteatro students and students from other schools. In a logic of travel to other locations, a meeting between students is proposed.

Aconteceu-me um Poema
Poetic dialogue between Sophia de Mello Breyner Andresen and Fernando Pessoa/ Álvaro de Campos/ Ricardo Reis and Alberto Caeiro. "Aconteceu-me um Poema" is the phrase spoken by Pessoa to which Sophia refers to explain the way she wrote. Sophia assumes in her poetry the influence of Fernando Pessoa and his heteronyms, making glosses, dedications and quotations and re-interpretations of verses. Placed face to face, they allow diving into the similarities and differences of these 5 poetic identities.
