'Before' is a magnificent rarity of Hiroshima’s programming and a small jewel in new Portuguese dramaturgy. Recently presented at Théâtre de la Ville in Paris, Pedro Penim’s text approaches with irony and humour, the feeling of 'saudade' (the longing of the past). It speaks up about the yearning for a return to a past time perceived as glorious and desirable when facing a painful present. (In English with Spanish subtitles.)
Text and artistic direction: Pedro Penim. Cast: Pedro Penim, Bernardo de Lacerda and Frederico Serpa.
