Esta noite grita-se
- Body/ Arena

Joana Bértholo, with a consolidated career as a literary author, recently opted to take risks in the field of theater writing. With this Body / Arena it brings us a triptych, which takes place in dystopian environments in which we recognize many of the concerns that occupy contemporary thought. Bértholo here uses theater to present us with the idea of the body as a frontier place in the never easy relationship with our context and our future. And the characters she introduces are unexpected: three fat people who are unable to move, eagerly await the delivery of the next dose of food, a man who since the loss of his father has never been able to sleep again, and three old men who fight for the best position in front of a fan, while discussing the pertinence of staying alive. Even though the environments automatically transport us to Beckett's imagination, these characters are endowed with a realism that appears in the lucidity of their arguments when discussing their future - a future that, like ours, is uncertain and frightening.
