Marvila Wonderful!

At a certain point in time, two people meet in a valley in Marvila. Or perhaps on the seafront of Mar da Palha, at the door of an ancient palace, in the shade of a fig tree, in the atrium of a building... They are very different, they have never seen each other before and they have a way to go. At that moment, between crossing and hiding the shy look, and in an unexpected act of courage, they say hello. They realize that they are unique beings with fascinating pasts, some going back to stories in theater books. The planet placed them there, at that moment, face to face, and now the only possibility to move forward is to know each other, to know each other's pains and joys and to create something new. This was the starting point for an alternative exploration of this place called Marvila and has the participation of professional actors and local interpreters, residing in Marvila, in a project developed together. It uses as a basis the experience of the different parties involved: personal stories and projections about the past and future of life in the city and in the neighborhoods.
