THE GIRL, THE HAMMER AND THE CARAMEL

 

 

Casa dos Afectos is proud to present itself reinvigorated with an unprecedented spectacle, irreverent and daring, “The Girl, the Hammer and the Caramel – Poetic Delirium in Six Movements and a Reverie.

A conservative and arrogant man, his hypersexualized niece, a revolutionary writer, a tainted woman, and the spirit of poetry – these are the characters that make up the plot of The Girl, the Hammer and the Caramel – Poetic Delirium in Six Movements and a Reverie, written by João Nuno Esteves. With topics ranging from democracy to utopia, poetry to desire, from sex to death, this is a piece that takes us to the heart of the meaning of words, the symbolism of things, and what it means to be who you are.
